I work in the Space and Facilities department so I am oblivious to the way our Courtroom Services teams, Trustees, chamber’s staff and judges work together to open, process and close bankruptcy cases. We were asked to create a flowchart of a chapter 13 case and the process and the work that goes into serving the public was mind blowing, but very interesting. Another interesting portion of the MSU courses was the “Presenting Like a Pro” course. Barry introduced us into some intriguing ways to deliver information during a presentation. He used a few videos of Steve Jobs presenting new Apple products. The different approaches and strategies that are used to convey information and sell products was very eye opening. I will definitely be incorporating these strategies for future presentations that I prepare for the court.
In my opinion, the courses that were presented at the conference were educational, relevant topics and material that can be applied to our everyday work experiences. I am extremely grateful that I was given the opportunity to participate at this year’s NCBC conference and engage in these courses. I will definitely share the information that I learned with my co-workers and incorporate these new skills into my everyday projects.
