Work this way
The Book Launch of Gigsters - Any Age or Ability Employees, Experts and Entrepreneurs by Sue Ellson is to be held on Friday, 17 May 2019 from 5:30 pm to 7:00 pm at the Wheeler Centre in Melbourne.
The evening introduces the concepts of being a "gigster" and provides a friendly environment to meet and mix with current and future gigsters.
So what is a gigster anyway? For those not familiar with the term it basically means undertaking work in a non-traditional form – usually on a task by task basis - hence the work is known as a "gig" (not unlike the way musicians have "gigs"). The task might be anything from driving for Uber, performing tasks for Airtasker, freelancing in whatever profession or area of expertise you might have, writing a book or simply a side hustle undertaken in addition to a day job. The possibilities are endless and while the dictionaries haven't really caught up with 'gigster' as yet this article gives a good explanation of what the "gig" economy is and how it works.
On the night books will be available to purchase at RRP $24.99 and personalised signing by the author.
