Today, this official press release was sent out to the international translation industry. At the same time, it’s farewell to the media sales industry I’ve been serving for 30+ years. I’m turning a new corner in my sales career to become account manager in the translation services industry. Never a dull moment!

Waiting for the final assessment report this week. The one which will determine my stay or leaving the current (small) referee league. Either way, it’s out of my hands now. Continue reading “The ref season almost done and now we wait – Rodric Leerling”
I had the unfortunate experience with Murphy’s Law on grass this year. After a full year of knee injury and only four games into the new season, it was game-over again in October. This time my left calf muscle gave in. Continue reading “Aiming for another re-start- Rodric Leerling”

Two totally different games with ref mentor duties. It started with a young, highly ambitious young lad and ended with a jumbled, uncertain old guy.
