About this event

Meet, connect and converse with like-minded linguists and language professionals.

Language Professionals' Networking Event takes place once a month. The purpose of these regular meetings is to provide a platform where language teachers, coaches, trainers, tutors, translators, interpreters, voice-over actors, voice coaches, language and speech therapists, language and translation consultants, editors, proofreaders, copywriters, researchers, transcreators, forensic linguists - you name it, can meet, learn from each other, be inspired by talks and interviews with some brilliant minds from the linguist world, ask for support from like-minded professionals, and learn of new opportunities.

In the times we are in, community spirit is more important than ever. Join us online for a thought-provoking talk followed by networking and great conversations. We’ll also have the opportunity to discuss our challenges in a private, supportive environment.

Date: Thursday 21st October, 6.30 pm onwards – London, UK time

Location: Zoom

Programme and agenda:

(All times displayed are UK London times.)

➡️ 6.30pm: The virtual doors open. Grab a drink and join us.

➡️ 6.35pm: Welcome by the host

➡️ 6.40pm: Sue Leschen: Working Remotely - Which terms and conditions should we be negotiating with clients?

➡️ 7.10pm: Q&A and discussion

➡️ 7.30 - 8pm: 30-second intro pitches. Structured networking, exchange of contact details, drinks, great conversations

So we've mastered the tech for remote working but which Ts & Cs govern our relationships with clients? What are yours? Have you got any?

Join us to discuss what terms and conditions can most greatly impact the everyday working life of language professionals by setting the rules for money, time, and place.

More about the 30-second intro pitches:

Everyone who’d like to participate will have the chance to introduce themselves in 30 seconds flat.

Why 30 seconds? Isn't it too short? - No!

  • It's the optimum length to grab people's attention.
  • It's powerful and respects everyone's time.
  • It's a way to share your expertise and credentials quickly and effectively with people who don't know you.
  • When people approach you after the pitch, you'll have the chance to explain more to those who would like to find out more about you.

What's the best format for a 30-second intro pitch?

There are multiple ways to tackle an elevator pitch. There isn't one single recipe, so experiment and see what works best for you. Kick off with an intro of what you do, share some skills, mention recent successes, ask questions -it's up to you.

You can do this in 4 powerful sentences, less than 30 seconds. Those who'd like to find out more about you will certainly want to connect with you afterwards and that's where you'll have the chance to share more about yourself.

As this will be an online networking event, you’ll have the opportunity to exchange contact details and have private conversations with participants.

Date: Thursday 21st October, 6.30 pm UK time

Location: Zoom

Organiser Language Professionals' Networking Event

Organiser of Language Professionals' Networking Event - October 2021

We're a bunch of linguists and language enthusiasts who missed a platform where fellow language teachers, trainers, tutors, coaches, translators, interpreters, intercultural skill experts, voice coaches, language and speech therapists, actors, language consultants, researchers etc. could meet every once in a while to discuss all things languages and career in a supportive, informal environment.

Therefore, we created this event so we can get together once a month, learn from each other, ask for support from like-minded professionals who've walked the same path before, learn of new opportunities, and be inspired by talks and interviews with some brilliant minds and successful linguists.

Your host: Gabriella Ferenczi, German & Hungarian language coach, founder of ProLingua Global, a London-based boutique language training company.

We may record all or parts of a speaker's talk/panel discussion/interview and take screenshots during the event. We use these visuals for marketing on our website, social media and in third party publications, to help people get an idea what our events are like. The structured networking part of the event always stay private and won't be recorded on video.
