Freelance Story Night: The Rise of the Indie Pro

Join the Freelance Friday and CloudPeeps community for the launch of Freelance Story Nights in Berlin at Tech Open Air (TOA).  

The special topic for TOA will be on 'The Rise of the Indie Pro'. Hear from three speakers about their journey in building an indie business, and how they got started freelancing. We'll also have plenty of time for questions and networking.

>> Please register also via Eventbrite to attend.

Our host for the evening will be Kate Kendall, founder and CEO of CloudPeeps. She founded her first company, The Fetch, in 2012 and is a former-business journalist and marketing director. Kate has been involved with tech communities for many years, helping to create and organize Down Under New York Tech, Silicon Beach Melbourne and one of AU's longest-running meetups, Socialmelb. She is on the board of the Aussie Founder Network. @KateKendall

Speakers joining our panel will be:

• Kirstyn McMullan, Designer & Developer

• Zack Young, Digital Nomadic Entrepreneur

• Kat Loughrey, Digital Communications Consultant

Kirstyn McMullan is an Australian designer and developer based in Berlin. She has been casually freelancing since university alongside working the '9-5' in Communication and Media industry but made the full time jump to the digital nomad life after moving to Europe two years ago. In 2016 she founded Creative Agency, Palm Beach which specialises in innovative digital products and is currently experimenting with VR and IoT. @PalmBeachAgency

Zack Young is a digital leader and seasoned entrepreneur with over 12 years of global technology and business experience at both multinational organisations and startups. He’s an advocate of lifestyle design having published a book Learning to Wake Up in 2016 and writing for brands such as American Express and Glassdoor. He’s a digital nomad, one of the first eResidents of Estonia, and Managing Partner at early stage strategy consulting and advisory, Digital Native Ventures. @ThisIsZackYoung

Kat Loughrey is an Australian digital communications consultant based in Berlin. With over 14 years experience within communications and marketing, she helps startups and creative businesses revamp their business online, create meaningful content and grow their community authentically. She’s passionate in supporting others to take the leap, as she herself quit the 9-to-5 life, sold all her belongings and moved overseas in less than 6 weeks to embrace a remote work and freelancing lifestyle. She’s also the city organizer for Freelance Friday Berlin and supporting Australians moving to Europe with Aussie.EU. @KatLoughrey

We hope to see you there! :)
