What Are You Worth? Workshop
October 29 @ 9:30 am - 4:00 pm£100
A one-day workshop to develop freelance interpreters’ business, professional and personal skills in providing interpreting in an ever changing world and refreshed for 2018. Delivered by experienced interpreter practitioners in a positive, frank manner and include presentations, discussions, practical exercises, resources and business tools, and Q&A sessions.
Whether you are new to the profession or an experienced freelance interpreter WAYW is a ‘101’ back to basics programme dealing with aspects of establishing, promoting and growing your interpreting business for the long term.
First run in 2010, WAYW has already been attended by a large percentage of the UK’s freelance interpreters.
In this workshop we explore the psychology of negotiation, review your business models to understand the actual costs involved in delivering sign language interpreting services, review the context of the evolving political and economic scene, explore advanced strategies and professional skills needed to build into our businesses for the long term, and throughout the day set this in the context of collegiate and collective action.
This workshop is run by Ben Phillips & Darren Townsend-Handscomb.
Feedback on the programme:
“Thank you for an enthralling day – I can’t remember the last time I was so engaged and enthused by CPD….my concentration didn’t waiver once!
You both gave me such a lot to think about; and not through the lens I’d expected – so for that, thank you. – Linda Thomson, RSLI (WAYW Edinburgh October 2016)”
Plenty of free parking at the venue.
Please arrive at 9.30am for registration and refreshments. The workshop will start at 10am.
