The SENSE Conference is a one-day event in Utrecht, the Netherlands, for English language professionals. Participants come from the fields of editing, translating, interpreting, copywriting and teaching English language communication skills.
More than 10 top speakers, from inside and outside SENSE, will hold presentations and discussions during the conference. Participants will be able to debate on the changing state of the language, learn from best practices and brush up on the skills needed to be a successful language professional.

Mark Forsyth is a passionate, self-described pedant when it comes to the English language, but his detailed knowledge of history has given him a common-sense approach to its ‘proper’ use. He is an author, blogger, journalist, proofreader and ghostwriter. He can be found dispelling the grammar myths we were all taught in his popular blog The Inky Fool.
