Days of Note

Free workshops and events to help you turn your side hustle into your main thing.

Thanks to the advent of the mighty Internet, talented people all over the planet are turning their gifts into jobs. But, even if you're the cleverest cookie the world's ever seen, you'll struggle to succeed without a decent dose of business nous. These days, that means understanding a bunch of new and rapidly evolving mechanisms — from coding and design to UX (user experience) and content marketing.

That's why Samsung has put together Days of Note, a month-long series of free (yes, completely free) workshops dedicated to you. All in all, you can benefit from more than 130 hours of instruction from experts and industry leaders, without paying a cent.

In partnership with General Assembly, the initiative is organised in three stages. Week one covers beginnings, with sessions like Success in the Digital Age and Design Thinking 101. In week two, you'll kick into gear with workshops that take you from Problem to Prototype and show you How to Win at UX. Come week three, you'll be ready to dive into selling your idea with a Content Marketing Workshop and an Introduction to Coding.

Along with the free workshops, there's also a free event series. On Thursday, September 20, get tips to boost your mobile productivity from the likes of Fingerprint for Success CEO Michelle Duval and Dropbox Head of Sales APAC Dean Swan. A week later, prepare to scale and grow your business, thanks to advice from The Iconic co-founder Adam Jacobs and co-founder Fred Schebesta, among others.

Online registration is essential for all workshops and events — head here to sign up.
