So you’re thinking about going self-employed?

A very good talk. Full of useful information.
Full of lots of infomation. Not totally convinced me I want to have the hassle of branching out on my own and having to go though the whole networking process but it did help me understand the whole process a lot more and would give me a good starting point.
Really interesting content, with information and tips for both people considering going self-employed, and for those who are already on the journey. Toby talks about a lot of topics in depth; clearly Toby has thought about this a lot, and is enthusiastic about passing on his thoughts.
A great usergroup talk, as the talk brought up a lot of discussion points within the group, and it was really good to hear other people's experiences.
My only criticism is that Toby didn't look very comfortable in front of a room of (a lot of) people, but it didn't detract from the talk at all: I look forward to seeing this talk (and Toby's experience) progress and be presented in more places, as I think it should.
Could possibly do with an intro (summary, "tell them what you're going to tell them") and a remote click thing to advance
+ moving, engaging, rhythm
+ readable slides, nice and clear (The white slides were very readable, the grey ones a bit less)
+ examples, realistic tips and practical advice
Maybe slide footer with name/twitter handle and/or date/year
+ keep going after interruptions
+ allowing feedback during presentation without losing control
+ using previous slides and feedback during talk
+ focussed examples (not including specific clients/products, but focussing on the topic)
Great content - I was surprised how much I took away from this talk despite the fact I am already self-employed. Toby would benefit from watching a video of himself talking - I suspect he isn't aware of how many times he ums and laughs nervously while presenting.
