I had the pleasure to attend the Wisconsin Solo and Small Firm Conference in the Wisconsin Dells last week and had a great time. Over 300 attendees earned CLE in four different tracks, including a technology track. I very much enjoyed catching up with old friends and making some new ones.
I had the pleasure to speak on practice management with my friend and colleague Nerino Petro as well as do a solo presentation on virtual law offices. Interest in both topics was high with extra chairs having to be brought in for the former and a full room at 10AM on Saturday for the second.
Another thing that struck me was the great traffic in the exhibit hall – probably better than any show I have ever attended. Topics I found many people to be interested in (no particular order) were scanning and going paperless, case management software, digital dictation and overall office efficiency. There was so much traffic at the Krause Practice Management booth that I found it difficult to keep track of everyone who visited. That is a first and I am glad that so many of you who talked to me a the show have already contacted me.
Next year, the conference is going to be held at the Wilderness Resort in the Dells. My kids are already looking forward to it. Hope to see you all next year.nerino petro, Wisconsin Solo and Small Firm
