Description
This 2 module conceptual and actionable programme prepares a freelance linguist / project manager / aspirant agency owner for the change of role needed. A freelance linguist turned agency owner shares real-life, direct input on the challenge of founding, leading and growing with an agency. The training shares practitioner's insight into issues which are fundamentally different than encountered in the previous role. It also tells the rewards that follows the challenges.

The second module provides modularized, practical and actionable tips to manage finance and time (and crisis), building supply chains (and creative destruction of them), marketing and brand-induction (freelance brand to agency brand), SSSH techniques (Segmentation, Social Networking, Stealth and Honour) in building, running and leading an Agency.

Target audience:
Linguists who are either contemplating to start an agency OR those who are already functioning like an agency and wants to balance the roles better and grow on both the roles.

Format: online presentation conducted in real time through a virtual classroom environment.

The recording of this session will be available for all webinar attendees.
