European Freelancers and Where to Find Them
The goal of this talk is to help you navigate Europe's vast freelance economy like a pro. Whether you’re an independent professional eager to approach foreign freelancers to (net)work with or a business owner looking for rare talents, you will get new insights and useful guidelines rooted in broad market research. This talk may also open up some new horizons for you by exploring a curious paradox: Why is freelancing constantly changing and yet, deep down in its business core, it has remained as conservative as ever?
