Unleashing Independent Professionals and the Self-Employed in the New Economy

  • What practical changes could policy makers implement to help the self-employed drive economic growth?
  • What can be done to deliver recognition of the benefit freelancers bring to our flexible economy?
  • Would independent professionals be better off in a reformed EU, or would leaving help their business?

Find out the answer to these questions at IPSE’s flagship conference: Unleashing Independent Professionals and the Self-Employed in the New Economy, on April 26th, at One Great George Street. IPSE will bring together key politicians, business leaders and our members, the UK’s self-employed workforce, to debate new ideas and policy suggestions on how to enhance the enormous contribution the UK’s 4.6 million self-employed bring to the economy.

We are delighted to announce that our hosts for the event will be leading broadcasters Sue Lawley OBE and Declan Curry.
