Julia’s vast experience and generosity of sharing it with us was tested and confirmed, in my case, right on the spot. About an hour after the seminar, I received a call from a private client with an urgent next day job. Since, at that point I already ‘Knew My Worth’ well and was so tired that I really felt like I have nothing to lose (worst case scenario, I would have a long anticipated day off – thanks again, Julia), 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!
I have finally taken Julia Poger’s Know Your Worth seminar on business and negotiation skills for interpreters! Now I can proudly call myself a graduate of the shortest and most efficient MBA for interpreters out there! This has been a weekend full of exploration, brainstorming, discoveries, note-taking, light-bulb moments, and fun. There was everything you need to know, consider, and integrate into your business process to understand and then grow your worth. The seminar is very well-structured and highly practical. Now there is a lot to think about and even more homework to do – but what a great way to explore your limits (and find out that you are the one setting them).
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.
I am usually very sceptical when I hear for this kind of one-day seminars, and I was sceptical this time as well. But now I have to say that am very happy that I had a chance to meet you and be part of this interesting seminar!
For me it was inspiring and even though I already knew most of these principles since I also have background in Marketing, it was still very helpful to hear how they can be applied to our profession.
