So just yesterday the gang here at Libero Net had a shuffle on down to Manchester where we visited the Tech Hub, to hold one of our monthly Elance presentations.
Dan delivered a fantastic presentation on the benefits of staying Lean and Mean in a start-up environment, with a lot of good focus on how outsourcing platforms like Elance can help small companies get off the ground without costing the earth. Using more than a few success stories from the Elance world, Dan got the attendees quite excited by the prospect of using Elance to either find work, or to get work done for them.
After the main meat of the presentation, we all split up into different groups to answer any questions people had about using the platform in a more informal environment (which was helped along by drinks and pizza!) to help people better understand the process. Myself and Mark were also on hand to answer any questions about development work!
Overall a great success and a good time was had by all.
If you fancy coming to the next meet up then make sure you head over to The Next Generation Startup North West page and sign up for more information. We’d love to see you there, and it’s a great opportunity to find out some new working practices, even if you aren’t a start up company (Start up methodology can be very helpful for larger businesses too).
If you’d like to get $50 of free credit on Elance right now, make sure you pop on over to Join Elance and sign up! Or if you have any questions about Elance, or the meet ups drop an email over to firstname.lastname@example.org. He’s always willing to take the time to respond to any questions.

What are the Elance Presentations
Dan is a Mobilizer for Elance, so Libero Net hosts a monthly meet-up designed for people to come down and find out about the platform, and how it can help them. The meet-ups tend to be fairly informal, and usually involve an extended question and answer session with some pizzas for good measure!
If you are interested in attending one of the meet-ups, keep an eye on the LiberoNet Twitter and Facebook accounts, because we will always post details on there, as well as on this blog. If you would like to attend the next one, then head over to The Next Generation Startup North West page and sign up![/fusion_builder_column][/fusion_builder_row][/fusion_builder_container]
