Russ Riddle
Presents
"Corral Your Ca$h Cow!"
Live Via Zoom
 

As a business owner, your most valuable asset aside from people is your intellectual property. This session saddles you up to better protect, manage and fatten that cash cow.

 

Valuable Takeaways:

• Distinguish between the intellectual property types

• Ensure ownership from the outset (employees vs. contractors)

• Ace copyrights and avoid copy-wrongs

• Master the trademark DOs and DONʼTs

• Preserve, Protect & Defend — Police your I.P.

• Stop rustling others’ cash cows

• Avoid “public domain” land mines

• Capitalize and comply with licensing opportunities

Bio:

What do Barney® the purple dinosaur, Thomas the Tank Engine® and YOU have in common? All have been served (or are about to be) by Russ Riddle!

Having practiced marriage for 37 years, law for 29, fatherhood for 28, and braved adventures as a juvenile probation officer and professional speaker, Russ is convinced that we must never stop learning and laughing.

His love of levity stems in part from an intellectual property law practice that has served such clients as Barney®, Bob the Builder®, Thomas the Tank Engine®, the voices of Jimmy Neutron® and Larry the Cucumber®, as well as many NSA characters throughout the country.

Russ currently serves on the National Speakers Association’s Board of Directors and is immediate past chair of the editorial committee for SPEAKER Magazine. He’s the author of two books: Lawyer Up – The Smart Way and Persuasive vs. Abrasive – The judges have ruled, as well as the intellectual property manual Corral Your Cash Cow.

He is appropriately known as the “Anomaly at Law®,” for he’s down to earth, clearly communicates and lavishes others with levity.

Lauren Schieffer

As the daughter of a career Air Force officer, Lauren Schieffer grew up being uprooted and relocated every couple of years. This imbued her with a profound

independence and ability to adapt to changing circumstances. The lessons she learned from “The Colonel” have helped her make smart decisions and overcome adversity with humility and a sense of humor.

 

Lauren has navigated just about every aspect of corporate America in her varied career – from trucking to achieving top-tier Sales Director status for a global direct-sales cosmetics firm to managing a non-profit foundation. In her speaking career, she has presented in seven countries to associations, organizations, federal, state and local governments, as well as Fortune 500 companies - helping them improve the effectiveness of their communication and reduce unnecessary conflict.

 

Lauren is a Certified Speaking Professional through the NSA and The Global Speakers Federation. Able to relate to and energize everyone from the custodial staff to C-Level executives, Lauren is a master storyteller, delivering insightful, inspirational and relevant content that empowers people to absorb and act upon what they’ve heard – and she does so in an entertaining manner with a dry sense of humor that keeps them chuckling while they’re learning.

 

Her enthusiasm is infectious and her passion unmistakable.
