Sandwich Sessions

KindredHQ Sandwich Sessions

* Grab yourself a free lunch, courtesy of Freeagent to mark our first ever Sandwich session on Monday 9th September *

By popular demand, we’re introducing a brand new lunchtime event for KindredHQ members. Our new Sandwich sessions are an opportunity for members to learn something completely new, for free – in an hour, over lunch.

The idea is simple. You bring your own lunch, and settle in for an hour of inspiration and shared experience. You might be learning how to manage your WordPress blog, or set up your email marketing campaign, run Google analytics or develop your business model.

Hey, you can even offer to run a session too!


9th September 2013

This practical session will cover the elephant in the room – How can you spend less time on the boring admin and more time on running a successful business?

Matt Perkins, from Freeagent will take you through some very practical ways that you get the balance right.

After lunch, why not stick around and enjoy a productive afternoon’s co-working with other like minded freelancers and independents?

‘Sandwich Sessions’ are free to attend for KindredHQ members, Near Desk resident entrepreneurs and those attending the co-working session afterwards.

Our venue for today is Desk Lodge, Near Desk’s splendid central London venue.

Near Desk is working to make flexible working easy, using a single card that lets you walk-in, do business and work amongst other likeminded companies and individuals.

Desk Lodge is Near Desk’s showcase central London co-working venue. Whether you need a desk at a moment’s notice or you’re looking for a space to use more frequently, Desk Lodge from Near Desk offers hot-desking, an open plan working space or if you prefer, small private offices. Everyone from entrepreneurs and home workers to small start-ups or professionals. It is a buzzy and friendly yet professional business environment. Come and see for yourself!

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.
