Elancers Share Stories & Rub Elbows with Execs At Work Differently Summit at Elance HQ.

If there’s one thing the team here at Elance wishes we could do more often, it’s meet face-to-face with Elancers. We love hearing what really matters most in your lives.

With that in mind, we were excited to host a Work Differently Summit at our Mountain View, CA headquarters Tuesday night to highlight what “Work Differently” means to our community and employees.

It was a chance for local Elancers to drop by as the sun set, getting to know the leadership team and other staffers. They also heard from successful Elance clients and freelancers, plus there was plenty of time to network with fellow Elancers and simply enjoy some hors d'oeuvres and refreshments.

Well over one hundred Elancers braved a surprisingly rainy night to join us for the summit. Event activities ranged from networking and socializing to presentations by successful Elancers. Elance CEO Fabio Rosati kicked off the program with an introduction to working differently, followed by other members of the leadership team discussing some great new features and hidden gems.

We would like to thank Corrina Stasik for her well-received presentation that gave insights into an online professional. And another big hit was a panel discussion featuring three Elance clients: Kevin Zittle of GoVoluntr, Jon Acosta of Acosta Productions and Jonathan Fleming of Jonathan Fleming & Associates. A big thank you to each of the panelists, as well as everyone who dropped by for an enjoyable evening. We enjoyed spending time with you.

For those not in Bay Area, fret not. We’re planning similar events around the country soon. And our European team will be hosting more Work Differently Summits on the other side of the pond too. Stay tuned for details, as we’ll be sure to let you know when an event is coming to your neck of the woods.


As a new member on elance, this is useful information for me. Elance give me an opportunity to establish my self in the online community in a productive and meaningful way. I hope in future if there is anoher forum like this more freelancers will be able to be in attendance.

Thumbs up

Events as these magnify the work of all involved and helps to clarify the issues, bringing new solutions.
I really like that.

Good and nice post.......

Thanks & regards
