April Ad Tuesday - Freelance Like a Boss

Nashville’s Liquid Workforce

How Freelancers are Thriving in an On-Demand Economy

 

Freelancers are taking the world by storm. Ditching the nine-to-five life to set their own hours, more than 29 million Americans today work as freelancers. In December 2016, Forbes predicted that 2017 will mark the true beginning of the transformation to an on-demand economy.

 

Join AAFN’s April Ad Tuesday mixer for cocktails and networking – followed by two lively panel discussions with a diverse mix of Nashville’s successful advertising freelancers. Ten panelists representing brand strategy, creative strategy, copywriting, design, illustration, photography, music composing, social media, production and digital development will share their unique perspectives – and secrets about how they are sustaining careers as full-time freelancers.

 

The event is being held at one of Nashville’s hottest coworking spaces, Industrious Nashville, and panel discussions will be moderated by Matt Van Hoven, former writer for Digiday, Mashable and Agency Spy – and co-owner of a new public relations startup, Raven Public Relations.
