Although the COVID-19 pandemic has disrupted almost all in-person events in the language industry, the European Language Industry Association (ELIA) managed to bring this industry leaders together to a beautiful island of Rhodes this autumn. The conference, which was held on October 17-19, was also attended by LINGVOBALT CEO Aleksandra Drublionienė. This unique event, created for senior language industry executives doing business in Europe, provided world-class content on leadership skills, strategic concepts, competitiveness, team building and employee motivation. The conference speakers Véronique Özkaya and Ian Windle shared their precious knowledge on the tools and techniques helping to grow both personally and professionally. They also evoked insightful discussions on the latest language industry trends and its best practices. That was a perfect opportunity for us not only to share our opinion on the most topical issues for business leaders and language industry, but also to network with real professionals and best industry minds.
