Meet Your Host


I'm Sophie Llewellyn Smith, a freelance conference interpreter (EL, DE, F<>EN), member of AIIC, interpreter trainer and 1-1 coach.

Most of my interpreting work is for the EU institutions, and I spend the rest of my time coaching colleagues and running membership sites for English and French retourists (Rock your Retour and L'Atelier). I also offer webinars and ecourses.

I'm the creator of Speechpool, a site hosting practice materials for interpreting students, and I blog on my Interpreting Coach site.

I woke up one morning two years ago with the crazy idea of creating a summit for interpreters, and I'm really excited about this third edition! I hope you enjoy the results.
