Know your worth : understanding marketing and negotiating for interpreters

01 Jun 20 — 04 Jun 20

10:00 — 12:00


Contact: Know your Worth


Why do clients treat you like a commodity?

How can you convince clients you are the best quality?

How can you change your client relationships?

Our two-day seminar helps any interpreter who wants to improve their relationships with clients and prospects, gain more respect, and negotiate higher fees. We will look at the mindset underlying marketing and negotiating tasks that interpreters carry out every day.  Participants will add invaluable tools to their arsenal for marketing their services and negotiating contracts that they may put into practice immediately, whichever market they target.

Registration is now open for the Know Your Worth Lockdown Seminar

In what is now being referred to more and more often as “the times of the corona”, we have all seen a considerable portion of our assignments disappear, our savings drain from our accounts, and a generally panic-stricken mood set it on all sides, with everyone desperately waiting for life to go back to normal, at the same time wondering if it ever, truly, will. 

As we wrote in our open letter published a few weeks ago, even if this current lack of income is weighing on us, we cannot give in to depression. 

During our enforced isolation, we need to take the time to take care of ourselves – and we also have more time than we usually do. Which means we can, and should, use this time to make sure we are better prepared both for now and for when this enforced isolation is over.

We are an evolving course. These are challenging times, and the next several months won’t be easy. But we are determined to help you through this. An important part of our philosophy is that we adapt to offer a programme that would best suit your needs, and best answer the questions you might have, given the current situation on the market.

Which is why our instructor, Julia Poger, is offering yet another edition of our tailored webinar, taking into account the comments and impressions of our first groups:

Know Your Worth Lockdown Seminar

June 1 – 10:00 am – 12:00 pm – 1. Your Mindset

June 2 – 10:00 am – 12:00 pm – 2. You

June 3 – 10:00 am – 12:00 pm – 3. Your Client

June 4 – 10:00 am – 12:00 pm – 4. Your Money

We will work together on issues that have blocked us from seeing what we can do in these unusual times, and figure out a plan to move forward so we can work and earn both now and when things get back to normal – though it will definitely be a new normal. While principles from the Know Your Worth seminar will be discussed, this will be a more hands-on approach to what you personally can do today.

And, taking into account the impressions from our first groups, we would like use this opportunity to tweak the format a little bit, moving from one hour and a half long sessions to two hour long ones (as you can see from the proposed schedule). This will give us the possibility to focus even more on some of the pricing and negotiating related aspects of the course that you seemed to be particularly interested in.

We  are currently offering the full webinar series at a special #uncrownthevirus rate of 200 euros, and we are looking forward to sharing these coming weeks with you. 

To sign up, please e-mail us, and we’ll walk you through the next steps. 

Please note that the number of participants is limited to 10 people, and we restrict enrollment to those who can make all four parts. 

We will be scheduling more webinars, and releasing more content in the coming weeks, because all of us here at KYW are deeply committed to helping you thrive during this slow period, and on into the future.
