This is a hands-on workshop for interpreters looking to adjust their professional and business practices for changing markets. Based on empirical research and real-life experience, it offers interpreters the tools they need to succeed and grow, whatever happens around them.
Suddenly, things don’t seem as stable as they used to be for interpreting. The imposition of national contracts has led to a reduction in revenue in some sections of the industry, while political instability and technological changes are threatening others. In this challenging environment, interpreters need to quickly discover ways to adjust their business and professional practices to not only survive but thrive.
Based on empirical research and real-life experience, the Successful Interpreter Workshop deals with the key personal skills, attitudes and behaviours interpreters need to have in order to attract clients, grow consistently, and stay mentally and physically healthy. Instead of simply feeding interpreters information this workshop aims to give interpreters the tools they need to make their own decisions and take charge of their future.
Based around the key ideas of the book, Being a Successful Interpreter: Adding Value and Delivering Excellence, it is a practical, interactive workshop that guides interpreters through the process of shaping their career, from understanding their own aims and goal and matching them with those of clients through to growing deliberately and strategically and building support teams.
