NEVER STOP LEARNING

Welcome to the F-Academy – the school with plenty of window seats that will grant you a scholarship in return for a little curiosity, and where you can stop showing up whenever you like, without having to deregister.

Here, our F-workers explain the ins and outs of what they do all day, what topics they know the most about and what (until the end of their shift, at least) they find most interesting. It’s a deep dive into FREITAG’s philosophy and its production, design and organizational principles.

HERE’S HOW IT WORKS

Find an F-webinar you like the sound of and a session that works for you, and register for it. A link to your class will be sent to you by email 10 minutes before “school” starts. You’re more than welcome to ask questions and share your thoughts about the webinar, but not until the end. After all, this isn’t one of our F-Stores where the customer is king – this is the F-Academy.
