***Due to unforeseen circumstances, we've had to postpone this event. It will now be held on Monday 4 July from 19:30-21:30. We hope to see you then!***

Your CPD coordinator Maaike Meijer and the Starters SIG band together to bring you an interactive event recapping nuggets of wisdom from past meetings and gazing ahead at a thrilling new workshop on that slippery subject (almost) all language professionals seem to dread… money.

In a past Starters SIG event on rates, we discussed the question of how much you “should” charge for your services. We'll first revisit that topic, followed by a short presentation on money management by Martina Abagnale

Us freelancers exist on a pendulum between feeling like you’re swimming in it and wondering whether you can afford dinner. But are there ways not to feel like that? How can we best manage the money that comes into our bank account? These are some of the questions Martina will address.

However, this wouldn’t be a Starters SIG meeting if we didn’t include a healthy dose of discussion! Together, we will go on explore different pricing strategies available to language professionals and address various factors at play when determining a certain rate for a certain service.

All SENSE members are welcome and encouraged to invite non-members to join us.

Looking forward to seeing you there!
