If you are an interpreter who wishes to improve your relationships with clients and prospects, gain more respect, and negotiate higher fees, then this two-day event is exactly what you need!
You will receive two days of tuition, covering essential skills for any interpreter, costing less than one day’s interpreting fee.
You will be encouraged to take a step back from your own position, and envision the entire client relationship from new perspectives.
We will examine the mindset underlying the marketing and negotiating tasks that you carry out every day, so you may acquire invaluable tools that will have an immediate effect on your bottom line.
We will discuss concepts such as branding, selling, client relationships, pricing, negotiating tricks, and "coopetition," all illustrated with real-life examples.
Julia draws on parallels with other – often surprisingly similar – professions, and what lessons we can learn from them. She focuses on the upstream work and preparation that must be done before the interpreter advertises his/her services or negotiates any contracts.
Note: This seminar is limited to 18 participants due to its interactive nature.
