How Nashville Freelancers & Startups are Surviving in the New Economy

 

Freelancers and small, nimble creative shops are taking the marketing communications space by storm. Ditching the nine-to-five life to set their own hours, more than 29 million Americans today work as freelancers.

 

Join AAFN’s April Ad Tuesday mixer for cocktails and networking – followed by a lively audience-participation, panel discussions with a diverse mix of Nashville’s current and former successful freelancers. Our panelists represent brand strategy, creative strategy, paid media, experiential marketing, copywriting, design, animation, photography, and digital development – they will share their unique perspectives and secrets about how they are sustaining careers as full-time freelancers or using them to supplement their workforce.

 

The event will be moderated by Henry Chassaignac, current President/ECD at Zehnder Communications and former freelance creative and owner of boutique agency BumperCar Advertising & Design.

 

Panelists

 

Ben Thomas, SVP/Channel Engagement Director at the Buntin Group and former freelancer/small business owner.

Traylor Woodall, Founder/ECD of Fivestone Studios and former animator at CMT.

Heidi Ross, independent creative director, photographer, designer and former agency copywriter.

Matt Van Hoven, co-founder at Raven Public Relations and former ad industry editor/reporter who’s worked with Buzzfeed, Mashable, Digiday and AgencySpy
