Connecting with Clients Here and Now

Webinar Description:
Covid-19 has brought tough times any New Yorker knows. And with the global economy set to worsen for at least the next six months, no self-employed linguist anywhere can afford to sit tight and wait. This presentation looks at concrete moves that translators and interpreters should be making now to get through the turmoil that inevitably lies ahead.
Here are some references if you like to read before the webinar – a panel discussion “Facing the next four months” that Chris Durban, Ros Schwartz, and Tony Parr did recently for BP20+.
Participants are also encouraged to submit questions in advance to chris.durban@gmail.com.
