"Hello. I really enjoyed this thought-provoking workshop. I liked the practical approach and the general atmosphere of the day. It was definitely worth the trip. Congratulations and thank you to Konstantin, Dawn and Alina!"
"Konstantin is the best webinar-presenter that I have ever heard; many others are often too vague, or give information that is so vague or basic as to be meaningless (like "be nice to your clients')!! His info is clear and interesting, without talking down to anyone. He understands the issues facing translators and has really thought about ways to make things better. It's clear that time and effort has gone into his preparation. I will continue to come back again and again!"
"In business, you don't get what you deserve, you get what you negotiate."
