Joel Hughes

Tales from the frontline of freelancing and running a micro-agency

Joel has been working in the web industry for over 15 years and in his talk he'll cover some of the mistakes he's made (there have been a few) and he'll look at tactics which can help. Knowing how to design a website is one thing. Knowing how to handle the business side is something completely different. He welcomes questions (excluding those from whacko moon landing conspiracy theorists).

About Joel: Digital strategist at @Hinkford / Runs @port80events & The Business of Web Design (@tboWebDesign) confs / Apollo space nut / Views are my wife's @JessHughesTV

The Business of Web Design Roadshow + Special Guests

Joel has been travelling the country with his roadshow to talk to... you! The freelancers, the business owners, the small-time start-ups and each and every designer, developer, front-ender or content person inbetween. He wants to know your thoughts on the business of the web and what it's like to work in it.

We'll be welcoming to the stage several SecWed friendly faces to have a frank discussion on working in the industry - from managing your time and your finances, to getting over 'creative block' and maintaining relationships with clients..
