During December 2011, I interned with eCPD webinars, getting to sit in on webinars, write summaries for the blog and see what actually goes on behind the scenes (a lot of hard work, I can tell you!). I just wanted to take the opportunity to thank Lucy and Sarah publically for the opportunity! They are truly encouraging in all they do.
So here’s want I learnt:
Nothing is as easy as it appears. The planning, preparation and organisation that goes into researching speakers for the webinars, practicing with the speakers and finally hosting them, left me breathless. It really amazed me that they could juggle this, their own translating businesses as well as thinking ahead regarding the business and marketing side of eCPD. They made it seem so effortless.
-Generosity (you always had time to answer my stupid questions and give advice to a very naïve and fresh translator)
-Availability (I even got to have Skype chats with the famous Sarah Dillon on a number of occasions!)
Thank you for being so accommodating and for your encouragement along the way. I really enjoyed silently peering over your shoulders at everything as well as listening to a stack of past and live webinars, webinars which have really given me a fuller toolbox.
I have a suspicion that my internship may have benefited me more than them… So thank you Lucy and Sarah for this exposure!
Thank you never seems to be enough or convey the emotion behind it, but THANK YOU once again!
P.S. I hope eCPD Webinars offers this opportunity again so that someone else can have this experience too!
Oh, and you can catch me guest posting on their blog during January and February too.
