Interpreting Education and Training – Workshop Attendee Comments   Leave a comment

“Tamar and Alex provided and modeled a safe and respectful environment for people to ask questions, share information and learn.”


“The skills from this workshop, while vital for working with the GLBTQI community, can be applied to ALL the work we do and how we present ourselves in general in our personal and professional lives. It should be a staple of any conference and included in ITPs.”


“Totally opened my eyes, a workshop for all to experience, excellent content and dialogue! Open discussion format enabling learning from everyone not just the presenters. Video clips enhanced learning.”


“Presenters were very clear about ownership of the things presented, whether it was general practice or personal opinion. They established a very comfortable environment where questions from all levels of understanding were responded to effectively and respectfully.”


“Great workshop Tamar created a variety of real life scenarios where we don’t realize the impressions we make while speaking on behalf of a deaf person. I take away a lot of empathetic development from this workshop.”


“Great info and viewpoints that I as an interpreter need to be reminded of over and over.”


“Loved it, very relaxed and fun…Really makes you think about how our word choices and body language really impact us and our work.”


“Presenter offered great ideas for preparing to voice and how to be prepared for interruptions and unknowns, I enjoyed this presenter’s style and research.”


“Well-presented and useful information. A lot of” a-ha” moments I very much appreciated getting the information in English.”
