Anne Diamantidis (Argentina), ProZ.com Site Staff - In-person Events coordinator
Bio: A French native certified English-German translator, I lived in a few different countries and taught English in a school for difficult teenagers before graduating from the Catholic University of Lyons, France. Member, French localizer and moderator on ProZ.com for 2 years, I freelanced and interned in Germany and France, translating in the fields of financial translation and civil protection/rescuing due to my activities as a volunteer by the Red Cross. In January 2009 it was time for a new challenge; I left Europe to settle in Argentina and join the ProZ.com Staff as Events coordinator in the La Plata office. Ever since, I've had the privilege of serving the ProZ.com translators community through the organization of all ProZ.com conferences, seminars and workshops to provide ProZians with opportunities to meet in person to enpower their networks and businesses.
Drew MacFadyen (United States), ProZ.com's Vice-president of sales and marketing

Drew has also served as an adjunct faculty member for National-Louis University. He has a background in online marketing and promotion, search engine optimization and sales negotiation. His combined knowledge of marketing, social networking and ProZ.com will make this session both enjoyable and informative.
