Looking for events to attend this May? The Freelance Jungle has you covered with client management, accountability, coworking and more.

Have your say on client management

You’ve probably noticed we’ve gone all out with client management for the month of May. We’re looking to bridge the gap between freelance and client by instilling great habits on BOTH sides of the fence. But we need your help to do that. In order to make a case for what freelancers need to have powerful and positive relationships with their clients, we need to qualify what that looks like and prove it.

That’s where the client management research comes in. The Freelance Jungle wants you to share your client management woes and good times stories so we can show what’s needed to move the industry forward in a positive direction so we can begin advocating to clients in earnest. You can answer anonymously OR you can give your email and go in the draw to win Rounded (accounting software) subscriptions, a 6-hour workshop with me, design help with Jess and more. There’s nothing suss, just ten minutes of you sharing, so we can make a change together!

You get a freelance event! You get a freelance event! 

We look forward to seeing you at a slew of freelance events throughout May. And yes, there will be a transcript or action replay (or both) if you cannot make it.

Mastering the Art of Building Successful Relationships between Clients and Freelancers 1pm Sydney time May 17th

Obsessed with taking all the burden off freelancers to manage the clients, The Freelance Jungle has assembled a panel to talk about how to be a great organisation to work with from a freelancer perspective. It includes panelists from recruiting, marketing agency and startup life (because these are the three groups that give us the most grief or we’re plain scared of working with).

Come along – and bring your clients! – It’s designed to benefit freelancer AND clients alike.

1pm Sydney time May 17th
