Our 1st anniversary event took place on a beautiful summer day in Tate Modern, and was hosted by Paola Francesi.
Again, we had a diverse bunch of linguists attending, including translators and court interpreters, a person working with diplomats, language teachers and tutors, content and copywriters and other language professionals.
Tate Modern was a fab location with wonderful views over the city, and we chatted away the night well beyond dusk:
Language Professionals’ Networking Event took off exactly a year ago, and has grown into a wonderful community of all sorts of language professionals who appreciate the supportive company of like-minded linguists and are inspired by the diverse career paths we all take.
Our goal is to keep this a regular, monthly informal social event, an interdisciplinary meet-up that’s inspiring, and that promotes real connections and meaningful conversations.
We also raise money to support Moorfields Eye Charity. Each paid ticket sold to our events includes a donation. Free ticketed social events always provide an option to leave a donation. Over the past year, we’ve raised collectively £289 – every penny counts.
Moorfields Eye Charity provides targeted funds, above and beyond the responsibility of the NHS, to research cures and find treatments for millions of people affected by eye disease in the UK and around the world.
Thank you very much to Paola for stepping in as a host this month, and thank you to everyone who’s attended the events thus far.
We’ll be back in September.
