III Global Dialogue International Forum of Conference Interpreters

At the III Global Dialogue International Forum of Conference Interpreters I presented on my experience as a remote simultaneous interpreter. The topic of RSI (remote simultaneous interpreting) on the whole is becoming increasingly popular: they said on the session on interpreter’s scoring that RSI platforms are expected to grow exponentially. My presentation was about advantages and disadvantages of remote interpreting; I described the working place of a remote interpreter, the challenges the interpreter can face and how to deal with them. I would like to sincerely thank my colleagues for warm welcome and support!

Louis Vuitton

Today I was employed to do whispering interpreting (simultaneous interpreting without the booth) at Louis Vuitton HQ in Moscow – GUM (state department store on the Red Square) of the training for top managers on stress management, self-organization and mindfullness. It was really interesting and I will use some of the ideas: for example, it turned out that according to a number of studies if we are multi-tasking we work 40% slower It means that it is much more efficient to complete the first task before taking another.

Gartner local briefing in Moscow on digital business development

Today I interpreted simultaneously at St.Regis Nikolskaya at Gartner Local briefing for CEOs and CIOs. Presentations were made by Jenny Beresford, Research Director in CIO Advisory group. Jenny showed the results of the latest research among CEOs and senior business executives. The target of the research was to analyze and determine the priorities for 2018, main objectives, investment plants ared areas subect to main changes. The research revealed that the majority of CEOs plan to develop digital business and “digitalize” operations since they see in it the potential for the company growth and revenue increase. Jenny explained what “digital” actually means and why digital technologies and business are the future for every company. It was interesting to hear about digital transformations and the growing role of IT in a company: I have been actively broading my knowledge in this area and it seems that it was the right thing to do!
