Neena was interviewed about her Summit on the Influential Entrepreneurs podcast, listen here https://businessinnovatorsradio.com/interview-with-neena-r-speer-attorney-author-and-speaker-discussing-her-trademark-that-thursdays-virtual-summit/
Speer commented, “I am committed to smashing the statistic that less than 1.8% of IP Lawyers are minority. We will inspire others to see themselves by recruiting diverse speakers only. That may not be popular, but we know plenty of PHENOMENAL SPEAKERS who are MINORITY by Classification but in n MINORITY BY PERFORMANCE IN THIS FIELD. Many areas of complaint in this field is that we are not given the right opportunities to showcase our gifts. We aim to be that resource.”
She continued, “We want to help more young minority attorneys interested in courses taught by minority IP Lawyers and legal conferences like INTA by removing that restriction that is holding Aspiring IP Lawyers back. This is a free event meant to provide 8-12 FREE CLE HOURS for aspiring IP professionals. If you’re interested in sponsoring with a giveaway of your IP course, software, access to your CRM, payment processor, marketing, and even VA services, let us know what it is valued at so we can give you appropriate sponsor credit.”
The summit lineup comprises a phenomenally talented minority female and one male lineup who all are at varying levels of their trademark law practice. So, make plans to attend this event for these amazing lessons in IP.
