The Echo++ Weekender is powered by the skills and knowledge shared and connections and collaborations created among our members.

Which of the following would you be up for helping out with to earn back those Echoes?

If you select F or G, you'll be invited to add some additional info in the next question.

 
If applicable, tell us a bit more about specific skills or areas of expertise you could help with.

Perhaps you're a Twitter genius, you know your way around websites, you're an Excel whizz, or something else.

How did you hear about us? *

 
Are you an existing Echo member?

Yes? Hurray! Then you'll already know that Echo is an Economy of Hours: a marketplace without the money. Our members buy and sell their skills, services and resources, using a currency called Echoes. The exchange rate couldn’t be easier: 1 hour = 1 Echo.

No? You'll need to sign up here as part of your application: http://economyofhours.com/trading/#registration/social/ *

 
Were you referred to the programme by an Echo member? If so, what is their name?

Thanks for applying.
We'll be in touch soon!
