    Every time you express yourself in person, over the phone or by email, you’re projecting something about yourself and your business. So what can you do to come across as more professional when you’re just starting out and working with a limited budget?
    In this last webinar of the series, we want to talk about presentation. We’ll start with networking events, which send fear into the hearts of many shy and solitary translators, and we’ll look at how you can approach them to make the experience a bit more enjoyable and useful. 
    We’ll also talk about structuring your 10‐second presentation to direct clients, whether in person or over the phone. And finally we’ll look at what a good translator’s CV and presentation letter should look like when you’re approaching agencies.
    Hopefully you’ll leave feeling more confident about presenting your translation business to potential clients, whichever method you decide to use!
