SAFREA Gauteng South coffee meetup at Better Joburg is a success
On Wednesday 14 June, Gauteng South met for their first SAFREA coffee club get-together at the new collaborative workspace Better.joburg. And what a treat it was! Here’s why:
1. The venue was perfect
Between the chirping garden, sunny workspace, broad selection of hot drinks (including Earl Grey – who can work without it?) and welcoming artwork on the walls, Better outdid itself.
2. The turnout was great
A total of 23 Safreans and others joined us – more than some of our previous events. Could this be the monthly career-building session you’ve been waiting for…?
3. The insight was priceless
What started out as a friendly introduction soon evolved into a rich discussion on pricing, contracts, getting paid for government work, and more. Insights that, in some cases, took decades to acquire. You can’t pay for that kind of freelancing intelligence.
What will we talk about at the next one?
We can’t say. All we know is that, with the organic nature of the coffee club, we’ll chat about the issues most relevant to us. Or get some work done.
Thanks for coming, Safreans. See you next month.
