Proz Pow-Wow in Vienna: Slideshow

Our Proz Pow-Wow in Vienna yesterday, March 5, was a very nice evening of information and ideas exchange. We appreciate everyone who joined us at Pulitzer in the 6th district. The place was very nice and modern, and they had a separate non-smoking room with laptop hook-ups and a projection screen. We can certainly recommend it for future events. The food was good, too!

We had a good turnout and I am delighted to report that my presentation was interesting for our colleagues, who enriched the discussion with fantastic questions and anecdotes from their own business experiences, which made for a great interactive presentation. Thanks to everyone for their input and interest!

Congratulations to German-Danish translator Lise Smidth, who won Corinne McKay's book (which I highly recommend ) "How to Succeed as a Freelance Translator" in our raffle.

As promised, please click on this link for the entire presentation. Feel free to share it with any colleagues who might find it useful.

Thanks for raffling off my book, and I love the photo of you in action. On an unrelated note, it's so funny that you mention the "separate non-smoking room" for the meeting, it's easy to forget those subtle differences between the U.S. and Europe!!

Happy to do it, Corinne! Oh yes, we forget how spoiled we are in the US with non-smoking everywhere. :) Oh, I just realized I wear this same dress to pretty much everything. I will show up in a different one for the Colorado presentation, I promise!
