You don’t have to be a manager to lead, nor does being a manager make you a leader. This is even more true today than ever with social media influencers, digital nomads, and an ever increasing focus on scalable relationships. What does it mean to be a leader in the digital world? How do we prepare the next generation of leaders?

Brennan Smith

Latha Sukumar

Roman Zelenka

Since taking over the company in 2007, he and his team have been pursuing a single vision: to maximize the value of translation services through close, meaningful, human-to-human relationships with their vendors and clients.

Patrick Nunes

As somebody who has been actively involved in localization for over 20 years, I am passionate about the strength of our industry and also the constant need for us to keep evolving and re-inventing how we do things. I am an inclusionist: I believe everybody has something positive to offer, no matter where you sit at the table. I am a visionary: I believe that if you have your heart in the right place and the true desire to create positive impact, every vision can become reality. I am curious: I believe the status quo is there to be challenged and serve as guidance for change and growth.
