Workshop: Rethinking my skills to find new opportunities
Alison Grade will discuss how a freelancer can rethink their skills in order to find new opportunities in new sectors, and re-build a ‘new-world’ sustainable career as we emerge from lockdown.
Who it's for
This session is aimed at industry freelancers at all levels and across every genre.
What it covers
Topics to be covered include:
Skills audit – what skills do I have in my ‘toolkit’?
Why do my clients hire me? What’s the special sauce I bring?
Who am I when I remove the label of my job title?
How can I redeploy my skills to align with current opportunities in other sectors?
What is a portfolio career? How can I build a portfolio career?
How can I position myself to offer myself to new opportunities and markets?
By the end of the webinar participants should understand what their skills are and how they can start to rethink their offering to find new opportunities in new sectors.
Alison Grade's key skills are transforming creative concepts into a business reality. She accomplishes this with the films she produces, the creative entrepreneurs she mentors, SMEs and freelancers she advises and in her recently published book, The Freelance Bible
