Mike reports, “Speaking for Alt Legal was a great experience and I would compare it very favorably to other organizations I’ve spoken for. I appreciated having access to a wide and diverse audience of trademark professionals.”

Part of what made the experience so positive for Mike was working closely with Bri Van Til, Alt Legal’s Director of Education, who coordinated  all of the important details, technical arrangements, and logistics to ensure that the presentation was smooth for Mike and the audience. Mike reports that working with Bri was an exceptional experience. “She’s a rockstar! Bri does a great job of organizing and promoting the event. She is enthusiastic and has a great demeanor. Working with Bri was one of the best parts about presenting for Alt Legal.”

Overall, Mike says that he is “incredibly likely” to recommend speaking engagements at Alt Legal to other presenters. Thank you Mike for your participation in Alt Legal Webinars and for your very kind words! We feel very fortunate to have had you speak to the Alt Legal Community!
