Event description

Description

This year, we have a Before UpFront event!

Taking place the evening before the main event on Thursday 21st March, this will be an opportunity to meet people ahead of the conference, hear from our guest speakers, learn and knowledge share.

We'll be joined by Elliot Jay Stocks and Ashley Baxter coming along to talk with us about their career paths: Ashley now runs With Jack, an insurance company for freelancers and Elliot is a designer and creative director alongside becoming a publisher, first 8 Faces and more recently Lagom.

Both have great stories to share so this is a great opportunity to hear more about them and their journeys, ask questions and network with other UpFront Conf attendees!

Tickets are completely free of charge and the event will kick off at 7pm.
