     PROGRAM HIGHLIGHTS

    Attorney Bill Ramsey and Legal Technologist Phil Hampton are back with a brand new show for 2014.  In this forward-looking presentation they reveal the winning formula for utilizing the latest tech gadgets, apps, and tools successfully.  Bill and Phil explore the myriad choices for mobile technology (both devices and apps) that can help you transform the way you work in and out of the office.  No longer tethered to the office via a phone cord, mouse, and keyboard; agile legal professionals and their clients are taking advantage of smart technology that allows them to transact business anywhere.  The presenters will survey the latest innovations in mobile and office technology in this fast-paced and entertaining presentation.  Emphasis will be placed upon sound policies for the use of these technologies in the workplace for both corporate-owned devices as well as the popular BYOD (By Your Own Device) model.  They will also focus on the "hostile", or disrupting, quality of new technology and how to adapt to the change as well as navigate landmines that will set your team back in the rough and tumble world of innovative technology.  Most of all, Bill and Phil will undoubtedly leave with you several new technology plays that you will want to add to your team's playbook.
