The Kindred Sessions | Meet Andrew Walker

At Huckletree on May 14th at 6.30pm.

In the first of our new series, the Kindred Sessions, we introduce you to Andrew Walker, who started out as a game developer in a dot.com bubble agency, then built his own creative agency and two successful tech companies.

He is the author of “ScrewProof: Doing deals that won’t f*ck up” and he runs a website and podcast series called ManVsBrain.com that explores the way we make decisions.  He’s written for blogs, magazines and newspapers about new technologies & their impact on culture, economics and politics.

You can see him in action for yourself at Huckletree, where he’ll be involving the audience in his own inimitable way, in an interactive, games filled evening.

Here’s why it’s worth joining us for the evening:

  • You are considering working for yourself and you want to learn about the highs and lows of the journey
  • You’d love to meet some like minded people who work for themselves
  • You think Andrew sounds like a good egg.
  • There’s beer and nibbles
  • You want to avoid making the same mistakes
  • You want a sneak peek at the lovely Huckletree coworking space.

Who is Alex Butler

Hello, I'm Alex Butler and I founded the KindredHQ community and blog back in 2011 after I re-started a freelance career. I LOVE freelancing and I wouldn't swop the freedom, control and joy of working for myself for anything. But I realised how much I missed the company and energy of other people - of having a team around me. So, I got a few people together one day with our laptops, a jar of coffee and some jelly babies and we sat and worked together one afternoon. We've been doing that every week in London, UK since then! I am still 100% freelance and I like to share the everyday highs and lows of being a freelancer here on the blog.
