PPH Meetup June 21st

PeoplePerHour are excited to announce we’re having our first meetup in, well, a while – and you’re all very welcome. It’ll be low key, informal and hopefully fun affair.

The plan’s pretty simple: after work on Tuesday June 21st we’d like to invite all of you to come join us for an after work beer.

Freelancers: you might meet the perfect client, who knows? Clients you might end up chatting to an incredible freelancer. As for us, we’re just the hosts: we’ll get a round in, though if you have any questions about the site we’ll be happy to help.

To avoid confusion, we’d like to ask you all to register your interest if you fancy coming down. Please just email us on martin at peopleperhour dot com and the location will be sent to you via carrier pigeon or smoke signal (your preference).

Hopefully see you on the 21st!

Martin, PeoplePerHour team

Splendid idea but unfortunately I will be driving from Luxembourg to Auch (in the Gers), and onto Barcelona over 20th to 23rd June and will be unable to attend.
When you hold the next one, make sure it has ample parking facilities.

Great idea, looking forward to meeting other freelancers and maybe potential clients. Low key, laid back, feels just right. See you there on the day.

I think it is a splendid idea. I am a strong advocate of a one-on-one before engaging with strangers in any type of bussiness.

Sounds fine except central London would be more convenient for other Londoners and outsiders.

I think this is fantastic!
I work as a freelance Corporate Communication Trainer in India. I won’t be able to attend but I wish we had a similar set up here.
All the best to all those going for it. Hope some great deals can be worked out.
Cheeeeers 🙂

Sounds like a great idea – I’m also involved in various networks with fellow ‘portfolio careerists’ like me so will tell them about PPH too! Others may be interested in finding out more about portfolio careers at http://www.portfoliocareerist.co.uk

Hi,

Good idea.

We will be able to ask people who place jobs, why they don’t explain enough about the job and when asked questions, why they don’t reply to the clarification board.

Cheers,

Hey Stefan

Sadly this meetup was last Tuesday but there’ll be another one soon – keep your eyes peeled for that.

Stefan, I think I can answer those questions for you. Clients that don’t respond to the clarification board are generally people who feel they don’t need to (trust me I have been on both sides of this fence). Either the bids they have coming in are sufficient in number and quality, or else they have found someone outside of PPH. Essentially, if a client is not responding to your messages it is because they have no need. I’d strongly urge you forget about them and move onto the next brief/bid and concentrate your energy elsewhere. Why briefs are often not… Read more »
