Nick speaks at Creative Quarter event on working remotely
The owner of FCS Websites, Nick Hayward, spoke about his remote working experiences at Creatives’ Club this week. The event is organised by The Big House, an organisation that offers business support, events, grants and professional advice for creative and digital businesses in Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire.
Nick spoke alongside fellow remote worker and copywriter Kerry Needs to a crowd of around 70 freelancers. They discussed the future of work, opportunities to travel and work, how to make money online and how to deal with work and socialising while travelling in Thailand, Bali, Gran Canaria and Portugal. Much of their advice also applies to freelancers working in their home towns too.
Ross from Dispace also presented (despite a bout of man flu) and told the crowd about how Dispace is offering access to hundreds of coworking venues around the UK. Working from home offices has a number of downsides so being able to work from safe, comfortable spaces with good internet connections can really help many freelancers and small businesses.
The event was expertly organised by Tamily Cookson events (Facebook) with informal networking time and awesome food afterwards.
