National Freelancers Day 2017 promises to be bigger and better than ever, with a packed schedule of industry experts providing invaluable advice and support through a series of comprehensive seminars, masterclasses and workshops.
 
Whatever your industry, passion or age, this year’s NFD has something for you. Following three strands – student, new to freelancing and experienced freelancers – the day will include a host of tailor-made sessions covering everything you need to know about launching and running a stimulating and successful freelance business.
 
Craig McDougall, creative director and video producer at Broken Physics Productions, and a finalist for the 2015 Aspire Freelancer of the Year Award, will be talking about, and providing useful advice, based on his experiences of going freelance.
 
Craig co-founded Broken Physics Productions in 2013 and now works nationally, creating promotional and corporate video content for businesses. Some of his major clients include TaylorMade Adidas-Golf, IBM and Lenovo.
 
Craig said: “It’s a great opportunity to engage with the freelancing community and see where things are headed. One of the freelancers I work with is also up for the Aspire Category so I’ll have my fingers crossed!
 
“I’ll be doing my best to talk about my experiences as a freelancer. I’m hoping that over the years I’ve picked up some useful knowledge and that I can pass this on in the session.
 
 “I think the session will be useful for a wide range of people across all industries. Hearing the experiences of other freelancers is always a valuable exercise and having three award winners on the panel means there’s going to be a lot of useful information discussed at the session.
 
 “There are lots of important sessions going on but I think this particular one will have some valuable, practical advice for freelancers of all levels. I’m excited to see what the other panellists have to say and see if it can be translated to what I do and I think this will be the case for a lot of other people as well.
 
“I’m really excited about NFD.”
