2019 Winter Workshop and AGM

2019 Winter Workshop and AGM

The next Winter Workshop and AGM will be held in Monticello House in central London (on Russell Square) on 26th January 2019. This year, we are planning to include a Japanese buffet as a Shinnenkai Lunch. Please do take this opportunity to improve your professional skills, network with colleagues, make new friends, and ensure that your voice is heard in J-Net’s decision-making process at the AGM! 

In the morning we will offer two tracks, one focused on interpreting and the other on translation, with the opportunity to switch during the coffee break.

Session 1 (10:00-11:00). 反田美紀子: 「私のキャリアパス: スキルアップ&キャリアアップの秘訣」

Session 3 (16:00 – 17:00). Tony Mitchell ( Dojima Sake Brewery, Fordham).

As the Shinnenkai meal this year will be lunch rather than dinner, we are not arranging an evening meal. We will suggest a venue for post-workshop drinks, but after that please feel free to make your own arrangements for dinner.

Details of speakers and the lunch menu will be posted on the event Facebook page in due course. Please check it out (no Facebook account is required):

The cost is £40 for J-Net members and £45 for non-members if you register by December 31. After that it goes up to £45 for members and £50 for non-members, with the final registration deadline on January 24. Please contact Atsuko Househam  (atsuko.househam@btconnect.com) to register, indicating which of the morning sessions you are planning to attend.

We’re looking forward to seeing many of you there!

Claire and Atsuko
