To be honest, I’m a little hung over from the excitement. This turned out to be a well received event with attendees praising its success. But before I go on, I want to recognize our member and co-organizer, Amy Stout, who asked me to offer an event where she could get answers to questions about freelancing. Also thanks to Kevin Schuster, who provided financial support, contributing to our food fund.
Over the past two weeks, we requested our members contribute questions for our guests. We collected them on a Google Survey, sharing the results with our panelists that morning. This enabled our panelists a chance to think of sharp examples they could share to make a point. They must have taken advantage of that service, because they were open and ready to share clear, memorable anecdotes. Ken Franzen was an excellent emcee, who commanded our attention by framing the questions in a way we relate. When necessary he sharpened the question so the focus and points could be heightened.
During the talk our audience showed their attention and interest by asking their own questions or offering advice themselves. I don’t know how it could have been better. We are a small, local group, and the enthusiasm I registered at this event shows me that our people are passionate and driven in their freelance business. Finally, we couldn’t have accomplished this without the participation of our Emcee, Ken Franzen, and Panelists, Nathan Lyle, Michael Temple and Andrew Rinaldi. All were professional, sharing stories from their professional careers.
I took notes but they are a mess at the moment. I’ll do my best to clean it up, and when they are ready, share it here.
Next month, we’re planning a talk on the mysterious cPanel interface. Stay tuned!
