Narratively CEO headlines Freelance Focus in Brisbane, August 5

All the way from New York to Brisbane: The Walkley Foundation is thrilled to announce Noah Rosenberg – founder of Narratively – will be our keynote speaker at Freelance Focus in Brisbane this August 5-6.

Be inspired by Noah’s journey from freelance master-all-journalist skills to the CEO and editor-in-chief of a high quality online news magazine that became an instant success. In its first year Narratively made the list of Time Magazine’s 50 Best Websites and just three years after its launch draws on a network of more than 2,000 freelance contributors.

polaroid_noahNoah’s background includes freelancing in print, photography and video for The New York Times, CBS News documentaries and the Wall Street Journal. At Freelance Focus Noah will share his insights into what it takes to succeed both journalistically and financially across different creative platforms. Noah knows the markers of entrepreneurial journalism and his success has been a springboard for others: Narratively network contributors have secured book and movie deals and other professional opportunities.

Noah is a perfect poster child for the Walkleys’ Freelance Focus – combining his skillset as a writer and editor with entrepreneurial creativity to forge an exciting and successful career. We know today’s freelancers juggle more than just assignments and book-keeping – there’s also managing your brand and social media profile, exploring new formats and revenue opportunities, and potentially working with clients and collaborators on a global scale.

We’ll explore the complexity and opportunities of the industry at the Freelance Focus Conference on Wednesday August 5, with practical workshops available on August 4 and 6. From discussions about the latest in the industry, to inspirational short talks and practically-focused sessions, this is the networking and development event freelancers can’t afford to miss. Other speakers include:

  • John Birmingham
  • Michelle Law
  • Andrew McMillen
  • Trent Dalton
