“The best practices and tips I learned at Upwork events helped me to get where I am now; to raise my rate and charge $60/hour as a Designer. At Upwork’s Expert Talk I had the opportunity to share with other freelancers how I did it and what exactly helps me to keep developing my business and professionalism."
“A lot of freelancers I meet at local Upwork events reach out after a few months to let me know that they have achieved Top Rated status, using the tips they learned at our events. It’s very heartwarming to know that these events have a tangible impact on freelancers, and there is value in what we do.”
“The success stories I’ve heard at Upwork events inspired me to grow and build my own business. I realized that everything is possible and I just needed to learn how to do it. At Upwork events you can get inspiration for next steps, learn how to succeed, and find people to team up with."
“The Talent Huddle went great. There were a few new freelancers and we gave each other tips on how to get started. We also discussed the best ways to get our money in Chile and shared funny client experiences. I had a great time and I think everyone else did, too. We talked for about three hours.“
