ProZ.com powwow: Meet fellow freelancers

November 14, 2009, 3:00 pm
United KingdomNottinghamIn personEnglish
IMPORTANT NOTE:
THIS EVENT IS NOW FULL. APOLOGIES TO THOSE WHO HAVE MISSED OUT. THERE IS CERTAIN TO BE ANOTHER EVENT IN FUTURE THOUGH!


The next Nottingham powwow will be held on Saturday 14 November. Join us for drinks from 3 pm (until around 6 pm).

CHANGE OF VENUE: We will now be meeting at The Orange Tree, 38 Shakespeare Street, Nottingham, NG1 4FQ. The venue is off Mansfield Road close to the Victoria shopping centre, which is probably the nearest place to park for those driving. If you are coming by train it will take about 10 to 15 minutes to walk from Nottingham station.

Look out for the ProZ sign on our table – I have reserved an area for the group so we will either be on the sofas in the snug to the right of the main door or around a big table towards the back of the pub.

I look forward to seeing you there. In the meantime, happy translating,
Sarah


About the powwow: This informal event for language professionals provides an opportunity to chat and network in a relaxed setting – the freelance equivalent of those water cooler moments!

It's great... Oct 7, 2009

... to see so many people signing up to come along on 14 November, so thank you for your interest. ProZ's new powwow invitations really work!

By the way, for those of you who live further away such as Birmingham or even Derby, it's very easy to set up an event - no special skills required, just put a time and a place on ProZ.com and see what happensicon_smile.gif

Really look forward to meeting you all.

PS. If you're a 'maybe', I will ask you to confirm your attendance nearer the time. Might have to switch the venue or reserve an area in a bar somewhere if the sign-up list keeps growing.
