About us


Julia Poger, M.A.C.I. (MIIS); ATA; AIIC is this seminar’s instructor:

Hello and welcome to our site! Let me tell you a bit about me…

I started marketing and negotiating at a young age, because who would turn down a cute 12-year-old asking you to buy an ad in a newspaper? 

My career then continued with products such as 📖, 👠, and – after my Master’s Degree – interpreting services.

All that knowledge and experience went into building and retaining a wide-ranging client base in markets on both sides of the Atlantic.

I have worked at Summits, as well as with subject matter experts hammering out the details to implement treaties signed at those Summits. 

I’ve helped negotiate business deals, draft legislation, argue arbitration cases, build nuclear power plants, and gone on fact-finding missions.

For 30+ years I have focused on other people’s messages, and now, I want to bring all that experience to bear on YOUR business, and make a difference in YOUR communications.

Do you know why you can’t convince your ideal client that you are their best solution – and why that’s the absolutely wrong question to ask?

Let me help you SHOW your ideal client that they would gain more from hiring you than anyone else.

Make sure to look at the seminars on offer, or contact us here to see how we can help!

Tatiana Kaplun, M.A. (University of Bath), AIIC, is this seminar’s organizer. Tatiana received her Bachelor of Linguistics degree from the St. Petersburg State University, and later went on to pursue her studies at the University of Bath’s MA in Interpreting and Translating. An interpreter as well as a translator, she has been working both on the European and Russian freelance markets since 2011.


As a freelancer you come to realise the importance of marketing and negotiating, as well as, and this is something people frequently tend to forget, the importance of understanding what the client really wants. Attending Julia’s seminar in Cologne has improved my understanding of the subject immensely – both theoretically and practically, – and I thought it was something I would love to bring to the Russian market. After the success of the seminar’s Saint Petersburg edition I am very excited to be helping bring the seminar to new destinations.
