"Shorthand to a Super Memory" by Paul Mellor of Success Links
Fast paced and filled with a lot of interaction, the session shows
how people can recall information they never thought possible. Best
of all, they are effective techniques to put to immediate use. A
topic so important, yet often overlooked, the memory seminar proves
that we don't have a bad memory, only an untrained one, and that the
answers are all in our head. (.15 CEUs)
10:45 a.m. to 12:15 p.m.
"Hot Topics in Ethics" by Dennis Dinkel, Official Reporter and
Immediate Past President of United States Court Reporters
Association (USCRA) and Shari Rendall, NCRA Staff Liaison to the
Committee on Professional Ethics (COPE)
Have you ever been in a professional dilemma and felt there was no
answer? For example, how should a rough draft transcript be
provided to your client? Are attorneys entitled to your backup
tape? Get answers to these and other challenging questions in a
relaxed, open forum setting. (.15 CEUs)
12:30 p.m. to 1:45 p.m.
