Speaker's Bureau

The Asheville Freelance Network maintains a Speaker's Bureau for groups interested in programs by freelancers about freelancing or any of the topics listed below.

A freelancer is a professional business person who sells his or her services on a per project basis to more than one employer. The project may be short or long-term. Most freelancers have gained experience and credentials in their trades as employees before becoming self-employed. Many freelancers work from home offices. Other terms for freelancing are outsourcing or subcontracting.

If you would like one of our members to come and speak to your group, please contact any of the speakers listed below or contact Bob Boeberitz at bboeberitz@gmail.com. We can also arrange to have a program created for your specific needs.
