8. THE SEMINARS
During the panel "Defensible Disposal: If It Doesn't Exist, I Don't Have to Review It ... Right?," I was asked if I had secret EDRM tattoos. Dean Gonsowski, associate general counsel and senior director, business development, Recommind, San Francisco.
Listening to Ed Basart, CTO and founder of ShoreTel. The need for unified communications is growing so rapidly. (We do not sell or even use their products.) Gary Gross, vice president, business development, Mercury Development, Atlanta.
Listening to attorneys in the audience of my panels engaging me and other speakers and thus allowing everyone to go "off script" and discuss matters of concern. Ronald Hedges, consultant and retired U.S.D.C. Magistrate Judge, Hoboken, N.J.
At our session on the topic of social media and law firm marketing, we encouraged the use of the Twitter hashtag #LNSOCIAL and projected a live tweet stream. The response was amazing the online community came together and we also increased our followers. Daniella (Dee) Latham, senior copywriter, marketing, LexisNexis Martindale-Hubbell, New Providence, N.J.
9. THE DEMONSTRATIONS
Doing hundreds of demonstrations at our booth in the exhibition hall and seeing the high quality of the prospects that we were able to meet with in person at the show! Kudos to a show well done! Winslow Chapman, director of sales, OrcaTec, Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla.
One moment that stood out was Wednesday morning, when I dropped into the booth, and a new prospect was getting a demo of Legal Hold Pro. A group of three current users dropped in just to say "hi," but then proceeded to take over the demo and were selling better than we ever could! Monica Enand, CEO, Zapproved Inc., Portland, Ore.
Watching the crowd at our booth grow, like a snowball affect, as our CTO Andy Wishart gave a demo of ContractExpress 4.3, projecting his screen onto our display back wall. At that moment I knew the months of preparation were worth it. Anatoly Soyer, marketing director, Business Integrity Inc., Brooklyn, N.Y.
My favorite moment was finally sitting down Thursday afternoon to give the feet a well needed break. This, though, because of all of the great booth time, events, and conversations I was able to have this year. This was truly one of the best LegalTech shows I have had in years. Richard Clark, director D.C. legal/government accounts, iConect Development. Reston, Va.
