During various academic years since January 2014, I have taught on the MA in Conference Interpreting and Translation Studies (MACITS) at the University of Leeds, as an Arabic-English trainer in consecutive and simultaneous interpreting. I have also been a guest tutor at London Metropolitan University and a guest speaker at Aston University/ITI professional development events.
As a result of my own training and professional experience, I am a confident public speaker and workshop facilitator. If you are looking for a speaker for your event, or would like personalised training in public speaking, please get in contact.
I am happy to design training workshops for any size of group based on my areas of expertise, or to help to deliver your own workshop in French, Spanish or Arabic alongside the English version.
I can also help you translate training materials and tailor your event to the local audience.
I have been an active participant and volunteer speaker at various WISE interpreting workshops since 2013 - these are peer-to-peer practice seminars for professional conference interpreters. WISE is currently held every summer by my talented and dedicated colleagues Jose Sentamans and Joe Burbidge in Valencia and Brussels. For more information on WISE, visit wiseseminars.blogspot.co.uk
I am also currently learning Portuguese through a combination of remote lessons, visits to Portugal and Brazil and independent study.
