Reduce Stress During this session you’ll learn how to use technology and organization skills to remove stressors you’ll encounter on the job. Topics: which microphone will work with any computer; how to connect to a videographer to get an audio feed and what equipment’s needed to accomplish this; key words and services; use technology to set yourself apart from your competitor; using Depomate software.
Time Management Do you feel like you’re working a lot but don’t get much done? Missing deadlines? Learn how to manage your time, what equipment will help you so your work doesn’t manage you. Strategies and calendaring techniques.
The Cloud In depth discussion of what the “cloud” is, how it works and how to access it; review different cloud providers and which one works best for court reporters and why; step-by-step instructions on how to sign up with a cloud provider, download the software and set up your computer to use the cloud.
Realtime 1, 2, 3 This is NOT a realtime seminar where you’ll be taught a different way to write. This session will teach you a three-step proven method that can take anyone with any level of writing ability and make it possible for them to produce a rough draft ASCII within hours of the deposition, adding revenue!
