Hubert Hugo

“Conveying the gist when things start getting really complex is one of my strengths. I love the challenge.”

For me, conference interpreting means focusing entirely on the subject, the situation, the people and the essentials. When the discussion starts hotting up, concentration like that makes it much easier for me to keep a cool head and come up with a telling version of complicated subject matter.
