😟 Have you ever worried that your speaker will go on too long?
😟 Have you ever blanked on what your notes mean in the middle of a speech?
😟 Have you ever become confused, and didn’t know how the speech fits together?


This two-day online course will give you all the tools to be able to successfully interpret consecutively for any audience, for any length of time, comfortably and with confidence.

What you will learn:

On the first day, we will start by understanding the thinking underlying any interpretation, and how it can help you to follow any speech.

On the second day, we will move to all that goes specifically into consecutive interpreting.

By the end of the course, you will be able to interpret increasingly lengthy interventions using memory, analysis, and notes.

Course format:

The course includes lecture, demonstrations and some exercises, small group work, and practice.

Training is in English, and is not language-specific.

Who may come:  practicing interpreters who wish to improve their consecutive interpreting skills, as well as graduates from interpreting courses at any university or training center.

Fees:  $275.00 payable upon registration

Please note that your place is only guaranteed following receipt of payment.

Testimonial:

Let me thank you for this morning’s wonderful webinar/taster. Julia, your amazing warmth and your expertise really made my day…You were tremendously inspiring and energizing. And that’s priceless… Again, THANK YOU. It was I think the second time since this lockdown started…that I truly ENJOYED every minute of a webinar and found every bit of info very useful (and I’ve attended WAAAY more than I should have!).

Sarah Cuminetti, Taster April 2020

Julia’s vast experience … was tested and confirmed right on the spot… After the seminar, I received a call from a private client with an urgent next day job… I said ok, but my rate would be… and named a fee 50% over my regular rate… I got that job and my rate policy has changed from that point on. Now I am a more confident, more successful and happier interpreter. Thanks, Julia for showing me what my worth is!

Know Your Worth:  Understanding Marketing and Negotiating for Interpreters In-Person Seminar

Do clients treat you like a commodity?

Can you convince your clients that you are the best quality solution?

Are you lacking confidence in negotiations?

This seminar is for you if you want clients to treat you better, with more respect and higher fees!

Over two days we will explore the rules that hold true everywhere in marketing and negotiating. You will also understand the buyer’s (and seller’s!) psychology – and be able to use that in your prospecting.  

You will understand why your clients treat you like a pencil in a drawer full of pencils and instead, you’ll be able to get them to see you like an entire set of Caran d’Ache Luminance pencils!  

You will learn how to use our 8-step “Know Your Worth” process to become an expert and stand out from your competitors.

You will see how what you learned can give results immediately!

The seminar is broken down into 4 half-days:

💡 Your Mindset: because you can’t change until you understand why you see the world differently from your client…

💡 You: because you are different. You offer unique possibilities to your clients that no one else has.

💡 Your Clients: because once you learn to talk to them, and what exactly they are looking for, they will never go anywhere else.

💡 Your Money: because we do this for the love of communicating, but also to earn so we can keep doing what we love!

Who should come? This seminar is open to all practicing interpreters, from any market or any field, as well to graduates from interpreting courses at any university or training center. Beginners welcome!

Maximum number of participants: 18

Minimum number of participants: 4

Amount: determined by actual costs, and approximately equivalent to the cost of 1 working day in the market where the seminar will be held.

Guarantee: If you follow the advice given during the seminar, you will definitely find at least one more day of work – and will be more confident, more successful and happier!

Catriona Howard, Lockdown Seminar

I am so glad I found you in LinkedIn and learned about the KYW course. I don’t remember if I mentioned that I’ve taken MF’s BSchool. After completing the course I was left with the question on how to apply her teachings to the interpretation business. You’ve answered my prayers.

121 Social Media Profile Audit with Julia

Your social media profile is your 24-hour business card.

It can replace a website, and draw potential clients in.

At the very least, it shows what you can do to help potential clients.

But you aren’t sure what information you should include, or how to promote yourself and your brand without sounding like you are constantly sounding your own horn.

You will meet with Julia on Zoom, and go through your profile from top to bottom, for about an hour. Julia will show you tips you can use in your profile, and show you examples from other profiles.

You will walk away already having made some important changes, with a recording of the meeting, and you will make a list of what you need to do immediately, and how to use your profile in finding clients.

To book a time, please send an email to here.

Amount: €150 excluding tax for one profile
