Learn. Grow. Share.

To achieve the best that’s in us, as individuals and as an organization, we must be continually improving. NSA provides a wide variety of opportunities to do exactly that. From conferences to labs, the themes and the content may vary, but the goal is always the same: to learn, grow, and share.

And the learning doesn’t all happen in sessions. In fact, a significant portion of it takes place away from the breakout rooms – in the hallways, sitting next to you at lunch or standing beside you at an evening reception.

CORRAL YOUR CA$H COW!

As a business owner, your most valuable asset aside from your 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

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

Russ serves up quick wit, humorous storytelling and poignant tips, keeping you involved from start to finish. Having practiced marriage for 34 years, law for 26, fatherhood for 25, and braved adventures as a juvenile probation officer, realtor and newspaper columnist, Russ Riddle is convinced that we must never stop learning, laughing and leading.

His love of levity stems in part from an intellectual property law practice that has served such clients as Barney& Friends®, Wishbone®, Bob the Builder®, Thomas & Friends®, the voices of Jimmy Neutron® and Larry the Cucumber®, and impersonators of John Wayne and Michael Jackson.

Russ’s philosophy that every productive endeavor in business and life boils down to positive relationships, and that such requires healthy communication, underscores his mission of helping people achieve top performance levels.
