Fireside chat with Andrew Novak on November 22nd

When: Thursday November 22 2018 from 7:00pm to 9:00pm

Where: The Pheasant Plucker at 20 Augusta Street, Hamilton, Ontario

Organizer: Hamilton Freelancer Meetup



Our speaker for the last meetup of the year will be Andrew Novak! He founded Nova Digital Marketing, a local Hamilton-based digital agency that was recently acquired by Thinkr Marketing — formerly Albanese Branding.

We’ll be sitting down with him ‘fireside chat’ style, to learn everything about how he grew from freelancer, to building his agency business from scratch to be so successful in a such a short period of time, to employee hiring, to being acquired, and more.

It’s going to be an incredible time with many insights and takeaways you can apply to your own business!

We’ll also be celebrating our 5th year anniversary as a meetup group, so it’ll be an evening you won’t want to miss. Come out and meet other freelancers (and would-like-to-be freelancers), network and connect as we wrap up an amazing year.

There may or may not be dessert. 🙂

P.S. Freelancer Meetups are open to the public and anyone can attend, please invite your friends to come and learn about business building and freelancing!
