In addition, member Shana Astrachan will have her ‘Project Perfect Dress’ fit samples. For any ladies interested she would love to have you test fit her dress that she is working on. If you would like to try on one of the samples it is best to wear a dress with a slip underneath or non bulky pants so you can easily switch out. You will need to be ok with having your picture taken, for her records only. She’ll have two sizes, a small/medium and a medium/large, and is trying to figure out if they are sized correctly and if everyone likes the fit.

Indie Night: Mixer & Panel

indie_night_promo

Join Jennifer Maples from StrategyTNT and Laura Helen Winn from Form & Future for a social and panel on the challenges and joys of independent consulting. Make connections with freelancers, and ask our expert panelists about indie consulting: brand advisor Nicole Delger, photographer Sarah Deragon, and the marketing/community duo, Laura Gluhanich and Fiona Tang of Signal Camp.

During the hour-long panel, the conversation will be guided by Laura & Jennifer asking the panelists questions such as “One of the biggest challenges freelancers face is being outside the safety net of an organization. Can you give advice about being your own superhero?” and “How do you invest in yourself, with classes, organizations, conferences, and so on?” Whether you’re just starting out as a consultant, or are looking for some fresh insight about challenges you’re facing, this is the event for you.

There will be time before and after the panel for mixing and mingling with fellow attendees and panelists. Refreshments will be provided.

We hope to see you Thursday at 6 for an evening of inspiring conversation.
