“The rapidly developing arena of language technology has a great impact on the day-to-day operations of Project Managers. Their work is becoming more and more a mixture of organisation, linguistics and IT, bringing new challenges and for some requiring a different skillset. I feel privileged to contribute to this Elia event and advise current and future PMs on how to deal with these challenges in their daily work.”

Eveline Van Sandick
CEO and Founder


“Project Managers are the engine that runs production departments and no agency can work without them. They are constantly under pressure and expected to perform at the highest standards in many areas and often in the most difficult circumstances. This event is giving them a voice and a spotlight where they can meet their peers face-to-face and most of all learn from each other. Communication will be the key word of this event!”

About us

  • Provide a dedicated forum and targeted focus aimed at a specific audience
  • Openly discuss business challenges and issues
  • Share real-life experiences
Other events in the series include ND focus – Elia’s networking days for Executives, targeted to senior LSP executives keen to make their company stronger for the future, holding the first edition 21-22 April 2016 in Mallorca.
