Here's the video from my IgniteLaw 2011 presentation at last month's ABA TechShow in Chicago. Thanks again to everyone who voted for the proposal.
The event was fantastic, with a terrific lineup of boldfaced names from the blawgosphere. The rules were simple: 20 slides, 18 seconds a slide, and no way to control their relentless advance. It was terrifying and exhilarating. As someone who does a lot of public speaking, I found it far more difficult than preparing for a 90-minute speech. Most of the other speakers had the same reaction.
Here's the summary:
In 2019, your law practice will use cloud computing, a paperless office, and the iPad 10. But those won't be the biggest changes to how you practice law. Instead, the biggest difference will be in the way you value and price what you sell. And before you can make that change, you have to understand what it is you sell. Spoiler alert: It ain't "legal services," and it sure as hell ain't "hours" or "time." Instead, lawyers sell knowledge. How you value and price that knowledge will be the greatest change in your 2019 practice (before you hop in your flying car and head to court).
Here's the video. It's just six minutes, although it felt like 60 seconds at the time. Enjoy!
