Freelancer summer get-together

When: Thursday August 18th 2016 at 6:00pm

Where: Ye Olde Squire at 875 Main Street West, Hamilton, Ontario

Organizer: Hamilton Freelancer Association

Register: meetup.com/Freelancers-Group/events/232896021

Details:

We’ll either be in the main dining room, or out on the patio! (downstairs or accessible from the back parking lot)

Come join us for our summer get together! We’ll be meeting at the new Ye Olde Squire location near Main & Longwood.

The plan is to have a sit down dinner then hang around for a bit to catch up, with everyone ordering what they would prefer. You can get an idea of their menu here:

yeoldesquire.ca/#!menu-mainwest/cu6n

Please arrive on time (or a bit before) so we can get seated.

Unfortunately we cannot reserve the patio but they do have a large amount of capacity and should be good early-ish on a Thursday evening. Worst case we have the inside reserved and can break out onto the patio afterwards. If we get enough RSVPs, we can try to secure the downstairs area just across from the patio!

PLEASE RSVP so we can confirm numbers, and update your RSVP if your plans change.

We look forward to seeing you there!

PRESENTATION

This month we are happy to welcome Elizabeth Thorsen from the Innovation Factory!

elizabethElizabeth is a graduate of the McMaster University’s Human Resources Management program, an alumni of Western University, and a proud Hamiltonian. For the past few years, she has become immersed in the world of entrepreneurship, both as the Program Manager at Innovation Factory, and also as a co-founder of the start-up company, Cinetic.

Through her experience, it became clear to Elizabeth that successful companies and entrepreneurs all have a few things in common: a clear view on their customer, a defined value proposition, and an understanding of how these factors – among others – fit into their business model. These factors can be examined and explained in one of the best tools for entrepreneurs, The Business Model Canvas. Join her to learn more about how you can set your business up for success.

Freelancer Summer Patio Networking

When: Thursday July 23rd 2015 5:30pm to 7:30pm

Where: Need to register (limited seats)

Register: meetup.com/Freelancers-Group/events/223190156

Organizer: Hamilton Freelancers Association

 

It’s summer! The sun is out, the weather is getting hot. And the patios are open, just waiting to be filled 🙂

Introducing… our second Freelancer Summer Patio Networking Event, hosted by the Hamilton Freelancers Association

We’re going to pick a nice local patio where we will reserve an area just for our group. Arrive between 5:30pm-6pm just after work. Chat about your business, share tips and advice, network and meet new people.

Limited to the first 30 RSVPs.

Missed this event? We e-mail out early once the RSVP list opens to our private member mailing list. Not signed up yet? Join it here: http://www.freelancersassociation.org/join

For this second event, we’re changing things up a bit based off feedback from our first attempt at the patio networking. Instead of a full sit-down meal, we’re going to be taking $10 at the door, which will be pooled together to buy a bunch of appetizers/share plates for everyone to share and eat, and be able to mingle easier between tables and move around more freely rather than having to sit in the same spot. As people come in, we will order appetizers based on preference of the group.

PLEASE RSVP if you can come so we can make sure to make the proper reservation arrangements. We will message you via an email from Meetup.com with dinner location details closer to the date.

$10 at the door, covers appetizer food for everyone. Drinks purchased separately.

Regards,
Chad Fullerton & Brian Hogg
