From the first conversation, I found Annalisa conscientious and committed to rendering my project in Italian not only in its content and fluency but also in regard to nuance and tone. My Italian is sufficient to appreciate the subtlety of her work over and above her immaculate technical accuracy. Communication was extremely courteous, concise and precise. I have no hesitation in consulting Annalisa again as my translator of choice.

I wish to express my gratitude to my highly qualified, knowledgeable and patient teacher Annalisa, from the bottom of my heart. As a Chinese man, I had always dreamt of speaking English fluently. When I first settled abroad with my family, I was shy and didn’t have any confidence when speaking English. Improving my skills was my top priority, and my English-speaking working environment made this need even more pressing.
It was during that time that I signed up for her Business English training program. Annalisa’s courses are well-structured, tailored and detail-oriented – and as a trainer, she delivers them with patience and professionalism. She encouraged me to speak as much as possible with her and my coworkers as a way to build up my confidence, correcting my grammar and pronunciation mistakes in real-time. Most importantly, she greatly helped me develop my English presentation skills, positively impacting my career – and most certainly – my future, too.

Annalisa and I successfully managed and delivered both large-scale and smaller events, including congresses and hospitality events, like the Otkoberfest.
The 1st V-Bank Asset Management Day we organised in Munich was possibly the most remarkable we worked on together, featuring over 1,000 guests – including renowned members of the trade press as well as guests and representatives both from Germany and abroad.
Annalisa has a proactive, personable approach, and she is a great team member thanks to her ability to observe and deal with procedures, internal processes and business structures. Her excellent language and organisational skills, together with her extensive international expertise, contribute to the success of every event she delivers. It is always a great pleasure to work with her.

We have had a long-standing partnership with Annalisa, and for good reason. She creates and delivers first-class executive events which ensures a high quality experience for all our clients. From start to finish her outstanding attention to detail and personable approach means that nothing is left to chance. In event after event she brings such professionalism to logistics, people management and executive sponsor support that we can just sit back and relax.
And if that’s not enough, she is also an excellent public speaker – captivating, informative dynamic and full of energy: but above all a people person who instantly connects with the audience thanks to her wit, humour and sensitivity. She has incredible passion for what she does and I would certainly recommend her to anyone who is considering hosting a public event.

Annalisa has been a tremendous help to our publishing company Veronica Lane Books since employing her as translator, interpreter and sales personnel at the Bologna International Children’s Book Fair.

I heartily recommend Annalisa!
Publisher Veronica Lane Books Los Angeles, California
Annalisa has been personal language tutor to myself and 2 other members of my team for over 2 years. Personally, she has really helped to develop my German language skills from absolute scratch, with very clear explanations of the structures. She is extremely patient and enthusiastic and focuses on tailoring the learning to my specific needs. I have always felt comfortable in my learning with her, and always been able to gain understanding when I struggled most. Annalisa’s strongest asset is having mastered the German language herself, so she is very aware of the need to clearly explain and guide pupils through. Would thoroughly recommend her to anyone at any level!
