TGIF for Free I/P Training

When was the last time your intellectual property counsel did anything for free? If you can't answer that question, then maybe you need new counsel.
As part of my pro bono and marketing efforts, I would be pleased to visit your company's facilities anywhere in the world to deliver a free, practical seminar aimed at helping engineers and marketers identify and avoid intellectual problems. Below is a typical agenda that I suggest to new clients. However, the material can be easily modified to suit the needs of your particular business.
