As usual, LEO put together an excellent virtual conference filled with exciting topics and discussions, industry experts, resources, and speaker-audience engagement. This is my 7th out of 8 conferences. I continue to look to LEO to lead the industry into the new frontier! Looking forward to LEO 9 and beyond!

This conference has been top-notch: flawless organization, top-notch speakers, very engaged participants, very relevant, important topics, and so much more. I know how much work it goes into organizing events of this caliber, but you all have done it with such collegiality and grace, that it is truly admirable.
– Prado Antolino, conference speaker
I feel that this conference did a great job balancing overarching big principles with specific practical approaches. This is what I look for in every conference I attend. Discussing big words like advocacy or language access means nothing if it leaves the attendee without the practical steps of what they can do.

I’m really pleased to have attended LEO 8th! All sessions were informative, relevant, and to the point. The panels were dynamic and interesting with knowledgeable and relatable experts. Very grateful to the moderators, hosts, presenters, sponsors, and everyone who brought this great learning opportunity to us T&I professionals.

This is a very cost-effective way to keep up and chat with colleagues during the conference. Perhaps a post COVID legacy since the last time I went to an in-person conference was an ATA conference in Washington DC.
Thanks for what you do to keep us terps on our toes!
– Pedro Batista

I am so grateful for all who organized it and feel more supported and enthused about my job as an interpreter after attending it. Thank you for doing it – it was amazing! I am planning on attending again next year!

LEO conferences stand out for me because they are international and discuss a range of topics. The events broaden my horizons to the many opportunities that exist for linguists. It is encouraging to know that we (Interpreters/Translators) will always be needed, and we need not feel threatened by advancing technology.
– Eileen Celis
I enjoyed listening to all the panelists. Each brought their expertise and insight to a very interesting conference. So much information to learn and debate about!!
I am leaving with my gears moving fast for sure!

I have been in the profession since 1998, this meeting experience certainly made me excited. I felt like I am listening to rock stars of my profession. Very passionate people.
– Murat Saymaz
I was very impressed by the way these two days followed the announced schedule, virtually to the minute. I have been at many in-person and on-line events where the time discipline was not that well controlled.
– Dennis Caffrey
I loved the conference. It was pretty long but I learned a lot and definitely would like to attend next year again. I appreciate the recording as I feel I can go back and listen to it again and not forget what I learned.

Overall, great conference and learning opportunity!
