About the Speaker

Mag. Miglena Hofer is an experienced business consultant who's been cooperating with Self-employed in Austria since 2020 and helps with topics such as :

  • Eliminating Austrian red tape for business registration and running your operation.
  • Creating bullet-proof terms and conditions, so you and your business are protected
  • Making hiring third-country nationals possible
  • Resolving conflicts and disputes with contractors and partners.
  • Optimizing your organization to increase profit.
  • Getting you from an idea to a sustainable business
  • Supporting you on your business journey


The speaker will attempt to answer all questions asked by you with the use of your microphone or in the Zoom Chat during the presentation - the questions will be answered right away, or at the end during the general Q&A part - the speakers will decide about this.

To be able to ask your question or share during the webinar (using your microphone) please request "unmuting" in the chat or by "raising your hand" in Zoom Reactions and the moderator will do so at the appropriate time.

In such cases please keep questions as short and clear as possible so the speaker can complete the presentation within the planned time frame.

If for any reason your question wasn't answered during the webinar, we will get back to you within 3 days in the Forum. In some cases, more information might be required from you to give you a quality answer.

Webinar Recording and Privacy

The webinar audio and video will be recorded and used by SEA, but we will only use the presentation so we'd like to encourage you to ask your questions directly during the event and to keep your camera on, to keep our friendly and authentic atmosphere. The speakers prefer it and we would all really love to see you and hear you!

We're happy to see you soon!
