NOTIS’ Translation Division presents

The Sweet Spot Called Productivity

Presented by Tiina Kinnunen

What is it about?

We're often encouraged to go outside our comfort zone, but the truth is productivity lives in our comfort zone - the jobs, clients, and rates that make us happy. How can we find the most productive jobs and lucrative clients while also rethinking our approach to rates and earnings logic?

All of us want to increase our productivity, but do you know where your productivity comes from? Who are your best clients – not just the best rates, but overall best clients? What are the assignments that make you the most money per hour? Is the flat hourly rate the best solution for everyone?

We’ll look into new ways of looking at old things, re-evaluating our rates and earnings logic as well as ranking clients in order to find out where our own sweet spot of productivity lies.
