About Event

The away day offers you a full day away from client work to dedicate to yourself and your business. It is time to reflect and plan ahead to help you start the new year on the right foot.

​On the day we’ll explore three areas:

  • Reflection — a look back on the past year to review what happened and where you are now.

  • Intention — turning to the year ahead to create a vision for your business and set your intentions or goals for 2024.

  • Action — using your intentions to create a plan of action for the first few months of the year.

​There will be solo reflective and strategic activities, as well as opportunities to share and talk to fellow freelancers about your experiences, challenges and plans.

​You will get a workbook containing all the activities that we’ll work through on the day plus space to capture your own notes.

In one day my vision was set. My goals put in place. And my plans set in motion.

- Perle, Facilitator

​Why attend

​There are many reasons why attending an away day is a valuable use of your time…

​Focus — block out the noise, give your attention to your business for a day

Structure — participate in a schedule of activities to help you zoom in and out, reflect back and plan forward.

​Strategy — identify what you want to achieve next year and make sure you’re working on the right things to move your business forward.

​Accountability — join your peers to reflect and plan, with mutual support to get things done.

Action — create your own strategic plan with actionable, achievable steps.

It was such a brilliant day and has made me think about my business in a way I just wouldn’t have been able to do on my own.

- Penny, Copywriter

​Who should attend

​Freelancer, company of one, contractor, independent worker… whatever you call yourself, these away days are for you!

​You might be feeling overwhelmed by everything you could do and need some help to find what to focus on first.

​You may have a dream for where you see your business and now need an action plan to help you make it a reality.

​Perhaps you’re new to planning or looking to refresh your method.

​These away days are for you.

This day was the highlight of my year; the culmination of lots of hard work and challenging freelancer lessons. You made me think, you made me laugh and I can't thank you enough for helping me focus on my priorities next year and how I'm going to achieve them.

- Lynda, Market Researcher
