On Friday 1 September 2017 SAFREA (Eastern Cape chapter) and Nelson Mandela University hosted a joint-venture, half-day conference entitled Freelancing for Success.

SAFREA Eastern Cape co-hosts 'Freelancing for Success' with Nelson Mandela University

Five Eastern Cape Safreans made presentations to an audience of over 120 attendees, comprised of both faculty heads and students from both Nelson Mandela University (NMU) and local tertiary institutions.

Topics ranged from the business of freelancing, to entrepreneurship, networking, offshore income generation, business English, e-mail etiquette, professionalism, pricing of services, copyright, plagiarism and (of course) SAFREA – its mandate, features and membership benefits. Each presenter had an opportunity to field questions after delivering their pitches which enhanced audience participation.

A lucky draw was also held, where respondents who correctly answered questions based on content presented won flash drives donated by Brand Innovation.

SAFREA is grateful for the contributions made by its members: Adelina Gamatham, Carey Finn-Maeda, Carol Leff, Samantha Venter, Lize Hayward, Bazil Raubach and Bryan Howard. Special thanks also to NMU’s Lyndsay van der Berg and Zuko Gingcana,the conference MC.

Safrea is a Registered Non-Profit Organisation (NPO 114-297).
