When The Drum, a news site specialising in modern marketing and media, approached us to comment on the state of Brighton’s digital economy, we were delighted to share our opinion with reporter Angela Haggerty.
There are approximately 25,500 self-employed people in Brighton and Hove. This represents 13% of 16-64 year olds which is much higher than the national average of 9.6%. Why is that? Is it the lure of the sea that tempts people into freelancing and self-employment?
To help new and experienced freelancers brush up on their skills and knowledge, the Skiff is hosting a workshop on the Art of Freelancing as part of the Brighton Fringe.
Kati Byrne from Developing Dreams was presenting at the Business and Pleasure Summit in Brighton on the current state of 3D printing and a glimpse into the future.
The presentation was fantastic, very insightful and thought-provoking, despite internet access going down. Thanks to all those who attended.
