Hello 2022 and Goodbye 2021…that’s what everyone is saying. Global Interpreting Services however had a GREAT 2021! I can’t wait to tell you about it. First, let’s tell you who I am and introduce you to our Blog.


I’m Dawn Flanigan, the CEO and President of Global Interpreting Services, LLC. I am also an Registry of Interpreters for the Deaf (RID) Certified Sign Language Interpreter with over 30 years experience in the field. I founded Global Interpreting Services in 1996 as Sign Language Services of Michigan. We may have strong roots in the Sign Language world but we have a lot of experience in the foreign language industry as well.


Personally, last year was one of the saddest years of my life, I lost both of my parents. So many of us have lost someone we know or someone special to us in the last couple years. It really is time to put all of this behind us. It has been very difficult for me to grasp that amongst my own personal tragedy Global has had the best year in its 25 year history!


We have surpassed all our goals and all our company records in all departments. We hired new staff and set even larger goals for this next year. Our office remodel was finished and aside from waiting for furniture (6 months and counting…did I just hear half of the readers snicker and go, “um, yep!”😉), it came out great! I am also pleased that we have achieved a national presence that is greater than I thought it would be so soon. Our 25th year really turned out to be one of those years that you sit back and go, "Wow, that was one heck of a year!"


Part of our goal for 2022 is becoming more active on Social Media. We hired staff to help us do that. My assignment? Write a blog.


So, here I am. Hoping you will read this and become a regular reader and get to know me a little better as well as my company, Global Interpreting Services. This blog will of course discuss Global and Interpreter issues surrounding them, but it will also talk about other things that may interest you. Check us out on social media platforms like Facebook, LinkedIn, or Twitter and don’t forget to connect with us.


We will let you know there when our next blog is posted.


So, while I say goodbye to 2021, I say thank you for the ride. It was awesome. Global slid into 2022 full speed and we are running strong! We have some great goals for this new year and we are eager to get them accomplished. If you know our staff you know one thing is true…we work hard and we accomplish goals…2021 proved that.
