Two October 2020 Series of “Drafting Clearer Contracts: Masterclass”!

I’m getting the hang of Drafting Clearer Contracts: Masterclass.

I’m no Zoom maestro, but I’ve sorted out my two-device setup (so I can annotate my PowerPoint presentation while keeping an eye on things), and it’s been a while since I screwed things up. And my ring light shows my ravaged mug to great effect!

I’m pleased with Thinkific, the learning platform, except that their system for submitting student assignments seems a mess.

The quizzes, materials for discussion, and assignments? I think they’re interesting, so it’s likely participants find them interesting.

Participant feedback? I’m working on that. Heck, I’m only halfway through my first three series.

The most unexpected aspect of this business is the last-minute signups. I’ve learned not to be surprised if I have few signups until a couple of days before the first session begins. Some sang froid is required.

But enough palaver. Here’s today’s news: I’m doing two new series starting in October. One begins on 5 October, with each session starting at 3:00 p.m. Eastern Time. The other begins on 20 October, with each session starting at noon Eastern Time. The course is built around eight live hour-long sessions held once a week and supplemented by reading, quizzes, and short assignments. For more information, go to the course home page, here.

After the October series I won’t start any new series until 2021, when things will get fun. I’ll schedule series through the first half of the year, to allow people to plan in advance. I’ll include two or three series exclusively for people in a given country or region. If you have any requests, let me know! I’ll announce the 2021 series in the coming month.

I hope to see some of you in Masterclass.
