Join us for the third installment of 30 Minute Mondays where a subject matter expert and moderator sit down for a hard-hitting, jam-packed 30-minute conversation about the topics you need to know to start your week. No slides, no long lectures, just facts, tips, and tricks to help you take your events and business to the next level. Can’t make it? 30 Minute Mondays will be available on-demand the next business day. Check out our new 30-Minute Monday’s tab under “Digital Education” at academy.mpi.org to access.

In this session, we are joined by the President of Cadre, Todd Taranto. The gig economy is alive and well in the meetings industry, but what does it take to be an event freelancer? How is freelancing different from employment? What does it take to set yourself up, market yourself, and actually get contracted for work? Learn the risk and rewards, the ups and downs, and the freedom enjoyed by freelancing from event industry veteran Joy Polhemus.

Specifically, in this 30 Minute Monday, you will learn about …

  • Learn the key administrative steps needed to establish a company, so you can establish a freelancing business.
  • Determine how to market and price your services in order to contract for event freelancing work.
  • Gain an understanding of the risks and rewards of event freelancing to better equip yourself to budget for and balance your personal and professional life.
