Whether face-to-face or through digital media, initiating and retaining professional contacts is an important part of gaining new work and building work continuity.

With this in mind, this March, FEU Training is to deliver a new workshop ‘Linking In and Meeting Up’ as part of its successful ‘Make Impact’ programme of workshops, which has been running since 2011.

“From the huge number of applications for each workshop we’ve received to date and the positive feedback we're getting, we are hitting the right note regarding the skills development needs of freelances,” said project manager Frances Dredge. “From what our members say, this is because the training provided is specifically targeted to the needs of freelances working in the creative industries as well as being affordable and accessible. In fact, many have told us, this is the only opportunity they have had to take part in on-going adult learning.”
