Speaking - Marketing Tips for Translators



I enjoy sharing my knowledge in marketing, translation and freelancing and my goal is that every translator feels successful in his or her business.

This is what other people say about my presentations and workshops: “Tess Whitty is an entertaining, dynamic and knowledgeable speaker, trainer and presenter, focusing on practical “how to”, rather than theory. By the time attendees have digested Tess’s material they have something of value to take away and to take action on.” 

If you would like to book a presentation or workshop for your organization or conference, please email me. You can also take a look at my media kit for more information.

“The contents and materials of the course very extremely helpful and organized. The instructor created a marketing plan template and walked the audience through each field outlined in the template. I am extremely satisfied!”

“The trainer was very professional, knowledgeable and courteous! She explained each slide in as much thorough details as possible. Also, her presentation was very organized and easy to follow. Finally, at the end, she took time to answer every question from the audience and provided as much detail as possible in her answers. Super!!!”
