If you follow me on Twitter or Facebook, you’re probably aware that things have been quiet here because I’ve been out of town. I was in Phoenix last week for 3 days of Trial Director Certification/Training, and with the hotel wifi being rather lame, I haven’t been around to update the blog. 🙂
Anyway, the training was great. I definitely have much more understanding of how to use Trial Director and all of the available features we could use. It’s a pretty powerful tool! The key is going to be figuring out how to demonstrate a few features to the attorneys so that they get a feel for what we can do in a trial setting, without overwhelming them with too much information.
The other challenge, of course, is that I think there’s a ton of stuff we could do with Trial Director, not just at trial, at arbitration hearings, depositions, and even in some presentations to clients, but I’m the only one who has spent the 3 days being trained to use it all. So, either I have to find a way to start training some of our paralegals, or I’m going to be spending a lot more time working on putting on presentations with Trail Director. That may require some other changes, but that’s pretty far down the road. We’ll see if it comes to that.
First things first, I need to start putting together a 10 minute demonstration to start shopping to some of the attorneys in the next few weeks, and then we’ll go from there!
