It seems that we here at the Know Your Worth community have a very exciting year ahead, with not one, but two new editions coming up in winter alone! First, the Paris edition on 20-21 January, and then, less than a month later, one in Washington, DC on 17-18 February.
For the first time, AIIC USA will bring Julia Poger’s Know Your Worth: Understanding Marketing and Negotiating for Interpreters to the USA, and we hope you are as excited as we are.
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.
What is important to explore?
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 address questions such as:
What can you do to increase your chances of getting the job once you have targeted the client?
What should you avoid saying, or else the client may never hire you – or anyone else?
What phrase should always end your conversations with any client?
How do you increase your chances of earning what you are worth?
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 may 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.
