Next stop: Stockholm—Feb. 19 and 20, 2016

If you’ve been translating for at least two years and want to break into the direct-client market, join Chris for Working the Room, a workshop first presented at FIT and ITI events, updated and fine-tuned specifically for the Swedish market.

Organized by SFÖ, this workshop will take a close look at the skills, techniques and reflexes translators need to develop if they want to link up and work successfully with direct clients.

Participants will then focus on identifying, preparing for and attending client events for the express purpose of building a customer base. Using concrete examples, we’ll address common questions from translators contemplating a shift to this exciting segment: “How do I start?” and “OK, I’ve got my good outfit on and am at the event; what do I say/do now?” Plus the essential “Conversation engaged: how do I shift over into commercial mode?”

Aim: equip all participants to build or add to a portfolio of direct clients over the next 6-12 months.

When:  Friday, February 19, 2016. 10.00-16.00. Coffee from 9.30.

Where: Best Western KOM Hotel, Döbelnsgatan 17, Stockholm

Fee: 1,940 kr excl. VAT (2,425 kr incl. VAT) for members of SFÖ and FIT associations. Non-members pay 2,240 kr excl. VAT (2,800 kr incl. VAT). Coffee and lunch included in the price.

And that’s not all!

For experienced translators and interpreters who are seriously interested in moving their translation practice up a gear in 2016, join Chris for her Business Acceleration Masterclass on Saturday, February 20. 

This masterclass, organized in conjunction with SFÖ, is not for beginners, part-timers, dabblers or ditherers.

It targets translators with at least eight years’ experience who have acquired enough experience to know that translation is for them. Who are passionate about their work—or who, facing price and other pressures, would dearly like to rekindle that passion. Who are at a stage in their practice and life where they want to raise the ante, and who are prepared to invest serious time and energy to position themselves in market segments offering greater intellectual satisfaction and significantly higher financial rewards.

Content includes but is not limited to specialization, marketing, pricing and working with Swedish/from Sweden.

When:  Saturday, February 20, 2016. 10.00-14.00. Coffee from 9.30.

Where: Best Western KOM Hotel, Döbelnsgatan 17, Stockholm

Fee: 2,080 kr excl. VAT (2,600 kr incl. VAT) for members of SFÖ and FIT associations.. Morning coffee as well as lunch included in the price.
