Have you ever given thought to your public speaking skills? Would you like to learn more about coordinating information, preparation, and managing nervousness? How about effectively focusing on your message and building a connection with others?

Communication facilitated by interpreters is a dynamic process. Since it occurs in a group context, the opportunity of a connection is automatically established.

As interpreters, we may serve as a medium of communication or as cultural brokers. We may represent an organization or our own agency. This means that we are frequently in a position to enhance our professional image and the degree of effectiveness through the acquisition of speech building and refinement skills.
