eCPD Webinars was formed in April 2010 in response to an increasing demand for hassle-free, flexible professional development (CPD, also known as PD, continuing education or lifelong learning). This followed the resounding success of a series of webinars run by ManagingDirector and founder, translator Lucy Brooks. Lucy, an established professional translator and Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Linguists, was joined by co-founder Anne de Freyman, and later, in February 2011, by Sarah Dillon. Sarah left the company in March 2013.
