"Matt did a session for us, informing students that were interested in “going solo” about what it is like to be a freelancer and what support Freelancer Club can offer such students and graduates. Matt presented in a way that resonated with the specific audience and gave a realistic picture of freelance life – an invaluable insight for our students."

“The talk on freelancing cleared up a lot of confusion for me. I knew I wanted to earn from my skills but didn’t know how to do it or where to start. Off the back of this session, I have started building a website to showcase my portfolio and dedicated time to a marketing strategy that will kick start my freelance career.”
