– Welcome and NCTA business
–  Featured Speaker – “Building Successful Client Relationships”
– Q&A
– Virtual networking
– Closing


Success for freelance translators depends on building a strong relationship of peers with serious clients through a dialog focused on value and outcomes. The presentation examines how we can brand ourselves properly, identify serious clients, frame the conversation for the mutual benefit of both parties, and price our services appropriately. The speaker shares stories about his own path to successful client relationships and invites attendees to engage in an open Q&A about their own situations.
