Here are 3 Ways You Can Stay Ahead of the Competition:
1. Attend Industry Events
Language industry events are fundamental to many agencies, freelancers & companies’ successes. Why? Because these events have presentations & panels where seasoned experts discuss and explore the latest tools, methods & strategies yielding impressive results. For example, at our recent Focus On Execs event, we gathered a superstar panel of Paul Doherty, Gerd Janiszewski & Véronique Özkaya to analyse effective methods when navigating Mergers & Acquisitions – super helpful tools and tricks were discussed to help professionals just like YOU!
2. Establish A Strong Professional Network
The immense value a strong network provides for language professionals is known all too well. And when it comes to staying on top of the latest trends it is no different. With a network of like-minded professionals, you are able to share your thoughts about new methods, emerging technologies & groundbreaking tools long before your peers are even aware of them. With online communities, language associations & industry events, there are endless opportunities to grow and build your network!
3. Industry News
Having an accurate, up-to-date news source is a great way to ensure you are always in the know. News sources such as Multilingual are great places to find out about new insights, technology & business practices. Also, subscribing to a high-quality newsletter such as the ELIA newsletter ensures you receive the latest news straight into your inbox every week.
