What people have had to say about the first edition of The Elia Handbook for Smart PMs

“I have read all the articles published by my colleagues with genuine interest and have learnt very useful tips from each article. Thanks to them I have enhanced my skills in relationships with clients and providers and in handling projects. It is also reassuring to learn that we all encounter similar troubles; it is a nice reminder that we are all human!”

Sara Di Nisio, Translation Project Manager, K International

“I was thrilled to see my article published in The Elia Handbook for Smart PMs! I got to share some industry tips with colleagues and received some pretty flattering comments. Also, the articles from the linguist’s and the client’s point of view showed me a different and interesting perspective. Looking forward to the second edition of the handbook with tips and tricks from even more industry colleagues. Remember, sharing is caring!”

Effie Salourou, Customer Operations, Commit
