CPD: the post Christmas detox begins

Now that the leftovers have been used up, the (possible) excesses of New Year’s Eve have worn off and the decorations have been taken down, it’s time to get back to work. As I still have a week or so before my MA course starts up again, I am starting the business side of 2013 by focusing on some CPD.

As I signed up to the newsletter of the brilliant eCPD Webinars, I receive all of the latest news, so I was delighted to see that Lucy, Sarah and Maia are running a 3 for 2 offer on their recorded sessions. I’m struggling to choose just three at the moment, as there are six categories to choose from:

• Business skills
• Interpreters
• Specialisations
• Technology
• Translation skills
• Translation workshops

The likely candidates at the moment are Specialising in Transcreation for Advertising Copy with Percy Balemans, Writing for the Web with Marian Dougan and Revision and Editing for Translators with Sarah Griffin-Mason, as they nicely cover most of my services. However, I also like the look of Financial Planning for Translators and Interpreters with Alison Lane and Make Face-to-Face Networking Work For Your Business with Sara Freitas, which I remember was particularly well received live.

The offer is running until 10th January, so make the most of it!

        Happy New Year Megan.
        I can recommend Percy’s webinar (listened to it over the holidays). I haven’t heard Marian’s webinar but she gave a great talk to Scotnet on writing for the web last year. I also listened to Karen’s Specialising in the Cosmetics and Personal Care Industry because I translate a lot for cosmetics companies. Enjoy whichever ones you choose :-)

        • Thanks for sharing your experiences, Alison. I am pretty sure that the webinars by Percy and Marian will be two of my three choices, but I’m still undecided on the third one – I’d better make my mind up quickly!
