Julia Poger

Special guest

Julia Poger, M.A.C.I. (MIIS); ATA; AIIC, started marketing and negotiating at a young age, because who would turn down a cute 12-year-old asking you to buy an ad in a newspaper? She then continued with books, shoes (hence her Imelda Marcos-like tendencies) and – once she received her degree – interpreting services.

She took all that knowledge and built (and what's even harder - retained!) a wide-ranging client base in markets on both sides of the Atlantic. She has worked at presidential and cabinet levels in two US and one French administration, at ministerial and presidential levels for international organizations, as well as for CEOs from various Fortune 500 Companies.

After a decade of working solely as an interpreter, she decided to start helping colleagues, and has trained interpreters in analysis and storytelling techniques in interpreting, polishing non-native English, and marketing and negotiating techniques. She co-organizes the Cambridge Conference Interpretation Course (CCIC), and offers seminars and consulting services on marketing, branding and brand identity for luxury and niche products and services – like interpreting!
