Prospective clients, networking, keeping up to date Oct 13, 2009

I see three main reasons for attending the ProZ.com conference: meeting prospective clients, networking with colleagues and keeping up to date with tools and trends in the business.

Best regards,

Angelica Kjellström

Various reasons Oct 14, 2009

1) I'm hoping to make some excellent contacts like those I made at the London Conference last year.

2) I'm keen to improve my translating skills as part of my CPD. I'm especially looking forward to the creative writing sessions.

3) I'm looking forward to chatting to like-minded people who understand the importance of hard work and quality translation

4) I haven't been to Nice for ages and can't wait to see La Baie des Anges again to remind myself of my Dick Rivers days (Allez, tous ensemble : " J'aimais les mots d'amour en anglais. Les lollipops en français. Quand j'avais dix-huit ans. J'étais un blouson noir imparfait, Un loubard comme t'en rêverais, Et c'était le bon temps, la la la la la la...")

Looking forward to meeting you all in December

Flo

The opportunity to pretend ... Oct 14, 2009

... that you are working, whilst in fact you're

meeting new and old friends,
laying the foundations for new business,
learning the tricks of the trade,
eating and drinking well,
having a holiday (especially if you bring your other half, as I do)
