The Return of “Drafting Clearer Contracts” Presentations

At the onset of the pandemic, I declined the opportunity to do an online version of my in-person Drafting Clearer Contracts seminar. But over time, we’ve all gotten used to Zoom. Yes, in-person presentations are more fun, and it’s easier for participants to engage. On the other hand, doing presentations remotely offers compelling efficiencies. And as things stand, the choice is between doing presentations remotely or not doing them at all.

So in recent months, in addition to getting requests do in-house versions of my new online course Drafting Clearer Contracts: Masterclass, I’ve gotten more requests to do Drafting Clearer Contracts presentations remotely. I do one 3-hour session, two 3-hour sessions on consecutive days or a week apart, or whatever permutation a client wants. You can find more information here.

And they’ve worked out well. Here’s one bit of feedback I received from someone who asked me do a presentation for a big US company:

The sessions were fantastic—I’ve gotten a ton of great feedback, and people are very excited about implementing some much-needed changes.

And here’s some feedback (edited for brevity) from someone who asked me to give a 3-hour presentation for an organization in Asia:

They all enjoyed the training very much …. For many, it is refreshing and revolutionary. … Many said they appreciate the time and effort that you put into the course and the book—not many lawyers would do that—and to share so completely. They also like the way you presented, it was detailed, clear and you made this serious topic fun and enjoyable.

After doing a Drafting Clearer Contracts presentation to another Asian group, I permitted myself this tweet with amusing feedback from participants:
