If you're not disrupting yourself, someone else will. Airbnb did it. Uber did it. Who is going to disrupt the translation industry? And how? Embrace change and build something radically better using the collaborative power of communities! This presentation will address the fact that the times are very much a changin’ and that we must change with them. It’s not about words, quality or pricing – it’s about so much more.

A known voice in the industry, Robert is currently CIO at TextMinded®, a member of the Advisory Board at Translators without Borders, and serving his fourth year on the Board for GALA.
