May 26, 2024 @ 2:00 PM

Part 1: Discuss my personal journey to where I am today as an interpreter and translator, paying special emphasis on how I was able to expand my business thanks to the many connections I've made along the way, how some of my favorite projects came about, as well as some of the crises that led me to rely on my network, leading me to new perspectives on how to better build our profession.

Part 2: Present a list of challenges we're facing as a profession (many of which we have created ourselves, and can do a lot to solve by working together), and

Part 3: Propose a template/system/philosophy/ground rules for making sure we're 1) leveraging networking opportunities for professional growth and 2) building a better future for our profession, with some specific examples that have worked for interpreters on the West Coast of the US (California and beyond).
