If You’ve Watched the Webcasts and Are Contemplating Attending a Seminar

If you’ve watched my webcasts and are contemplating attending one of my live seminars, you might want to read the following:

The seminars cover the same topics as the webcasts—that’s why the seminars and webcasts will, by 2010, share the same title, “Drafting Clearer Contracts.” Furthermore, currently the seminars and webcasts use the same materials, as it would have taken me a few months to develop entirely new materials for the webcasts. The result is that if you attend one of my current series of seminars after having seen the webcasts, you might find it less interesting than you had hoped. But otherwise I’m OK with the sameness, as I developed the webcasts primarily for those who don’t have the time or inclination to make it to one of my seminars.

For 2010 I’ll be overhauling the examples I use in my seminars. That should make the seminars more appealing to those who have seen the webcasts, although I will continue to address the same topics in both.

I can understand the urge to attend a seminar after having seen the webcasts. After seven hours of one-way discussion, anyone who has watched the webcasts might have the urge to engage directly with me. I’d do my best to make that worthwhile.
