How does Nimdzi Learning Benefit International Companies

Tucker Johnson’s Account Management for Project Managers course perfectly filled the gap between my linguistic education and my business education. Throughout my career, I’ve been doing my best to apply what I’ve learned in business classes to my career in the language services industry, but a lot of what’s taught in the classroom is too general to be particularly helpful to any one niche industry. Johnson did an excellent job blending theory with specific examples in order to give me the tools I need to understand and contribute to the big picture future of my company as well as handle any situation I might encounter day-to-day as a translation project manager. I also gained the confidence I needed to take my customer service skills to the next level. I always thought customer service was just a base level of being polite and helpful to clients, but the course taught me that I have the ability (and responsibility) to make a powerful impact on how our clients view us as a company and not just me as an individual.
