Event Details

Join IPSE for our annual flagship event National Freelancers Day(NFD) on Thursday 28 June 2017, at King's Place, central London. We'll be celebrating the most enterprising types of business: the UK's 2 million independent professionals with an extended day packed full of activities.

We want to give all the UK's self-employed one day to step away from their day-to-day to think about their business and skills. Listen and discuss with leading experts in their fields to help you grow your skills, business and happiness as a freelancer. Don't worry, if you get hungry with all this learning and network, we will be putting on a lunch spread for you!

This year, our event is based on the flexibility and freedom that freelancing and self-employment offers.

The day includes keynote speaker sessions, seminars, panel discussions and workshops all designed around 4 key streams:

Health and wellbeing


Winning work


No matter what your level or specialism we have something that will spark your imagination and provide advice on your business.

We have many exciting topics planned for you, including winning work internationally, the diversity of freelancing, how video can boost your business and looking after your mental health.

We are regularly updating our speaker and programme pages so please do refer to this website for the latest updates.


This year, for the first time ever, we are reaching out to organisations and support networks around the country who share our vision and want to support the UK's flexible economy. If you have skills to share, knowledge to teach or wisdom to impart, we want you to run an NFD2018 fringe event!

As a fringe event organiser, you will receive promotional support from IPSE, with your event listed on this website, social media support in the run up to the day, mentions in our newsletter and if you record your event we may feature it in the post-event National Freelancers Day video.

We welcome all ideas for event format and style, from informal networking sessions to hands-on workshops.
