Host a Talent Huddle
A Talent Huddle is an opportunity to meet up with talent from your industry or geographic region to network, share stories and have fun together. We encourage Talent Huddles to:

  • Make new connections
  • Share stories about the freelancing lifestyle
  • Socialize and network
  • Meet with your tribe virtually or in person

Sometimes, working remotely can be difficult, and you may miss having others around to socialize and network with. We've created Talent Huddles to help you make connections.

Huddles are planned and hosted by experienced freelancers in their own communities and groups. Since launching the first Huddle in 2016 with a freelancer on Upwork, thousands have attended.
