Bristol date for free training on using data to make more money from freelancing: 9 August

My Using data to make more money from freelancing course, which has now run twice at Equity’s headquarters in London, has a new date and location: Wednesday 9 August at Unite’s office in Bristol.

As usual with Federation of Entertainment Union courses, you can attend for free if you are a freelance member of one of the following unions: Equity, the Musicians’ Union, the National Union of Journalists and the Writers’ Guild of Great Britain.

As a reminder of the course’s content which is detailed here, I use my experience of writing and using data in journalism to explore ways in which data can be used in freelance businesses to increase profitability. It covers techniques including risk assessment, budgeting, making best use of your time, estimating and negotiating jobs, when to sack a client and how spot trends and benefit from them. As usual, I aim to make everyone attending £100,000 richer (the value of this pledge can go down as well as up).

The course has limited places available and FEU courses tend to fill up, so apply here as soon as possible, with the deadline being 3 August.
