Full Bio

Julia Poger – AKA Your Guide to Your Worth – is a Business, Conference and Diplomatic Interpreter working with Russian, who started Know Your Worth to give you insights, a roadmap, and confidence to get more business at higher fees with better conditions.

While the vast majority of interpreters have had no marketing training at all, Julia 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 local newspaper?  Her career then continued with products such as đź“–, đź‘ , and – after her Master’s Degree – interpreting services. All that knowledge and experience was transferred into building and retaining a wide-ranging client base in markets on both sides of the Atlantic.

After having received her MA in Conference Interpreting from the Middlebury Institute of International Studies in Monterey (MIIS), Julia has worked as an interpreter for over 30 years with governments, NGOs, businesses, and international organizations to help messages be transmitted clearly at meetings from international summits to scientific discussions, from business meetings to international arbitration, from building nuclear power plants to putting on a show. After years of informally giving advice to others on how to become more visible, she started Know Your Worth: a seminar by Julia Poger in 2002, and has helped hundreds of interpreters – as well as public figures, coaches, and other specialist service providers – understand how to deliver their message best to their clients.

Julia loves to travel, can be dropped in a country where she doesn’t speak the language – and will be able to order a meal like a native in a matter of hours (though she is sometimes surprised by what she receives!).
