Here’s why we changed things up. Here’s how we made it better.
LegalMinds is where I show lawyers, professionals and other business owners, how to market their practices and build their brands using social media and live video. Please watch the video to find out what we just did.
Between now and then, I invite you to explore everything we talked about and reach out with questions.
If you’re an individual or company that owns, manages, or controls a conference or event, you owe everyone involved, a legal duty of due care not to subject attendees, speakers, and those working at the event, to an unreasonable risk of harm. What this means is that you have an obligation to provide a safe conference environment and, to warn people of known or reasonably discoverable dangerous conditions.
I did a quick search in CaseText (AI based legal research service) and instantly found thousands of cases where conferences and events have been held liable for subjecting people to an unreasonable risks of harm. Full transparency, I’m a brand ambassador for CaseText because it’s awesome!
Just like the cases I found where conferences were held liable for exposing their attendees to dangerous conditions, I think the same argument applies to those conferences that create an environment that exposes people to unhealthy situations, including harm or death from the Coronavirus (COVID-19).
And I’m not alone. For both legal, ethical and health safety reasons, thousands of small and large conferences around the world have been delayed or canceled because of the Coronavirus.
Arnold Schwarzenegger’s rescheduling of his Sports and Fitness Festival is a good example of what’s happening right now. Watch the video.
I recently shared this video presentation, “10 LEGAL STRATEGIES TO PROTECT AGENCIES AND SOCIAL MEDIA MANAGERS” during AgoraPulse’s recent Social Success Summit 2.0. At the end of a month, I’m honored to report that my presentation was voted the second most popular by the general public (#2 out of 27).
In any case, AgoraPulse has given me permission to share these 10 tips, plus a few bonus tips, with you. Whether you’re an individual doing business online or, an agency or manager looking to improve your “best practices,” I hope you find value in this presentation.

My phone was hacked while using a Wi-Fi two weeks ago in a well-known Los Angeles hotel. I caught the intrusion early and avoided any issues. If I didn’t have a pretty good handle on tech, I would have never noticed the issue or found the problem.
Because I use public Wi-Fi and hotspots all the time (airports, courthouses, restaurants, coffee shops, opposing counsel’s office, deposition and mediation locations), I did my due diligence and am now using a NordVPN private network (affiliate link). It’s inexpensive and easy to use.
Once you download the app to your phone or iPad, you set it and forget it. NordVPN automatically goes to work to, behind the scenes, to protect you. I’ve been testing NordVPN for the last two weeks, and it’s great!
I’m glad I detected the network intrusion right away and before any of my data was taken. If you’re interested in being proactive and avoiding this problem, take a look at the NordVPN cyber deal that’s going on right now (3 months free) for the next 8 hours or so. I did the $3.49/month 3-year deal (it’s 70% off and also gives you a 30-day money-back guarantee). Now, I automatically enjoy the ultimate online security when I’m out in public.
NordVPN also works on your laptop, desktop, and routers, and I’ll probably add the extra layer of protection in the next week or so. One subscription lets you cover several different devices.
Here’s my affiliate link if you’re interested. Again, this is a paid app/service that’s been recommended to me for a long time, and I’m glad I finally took the time to check it out and add it to my online protection.
If you get NordVPN, let me know what you think after you’ve tried it for a few days. I can’t even tell it’s running in the background on my phone unless I take the time to do a security check (you can click on a link and test/check your privacy connection).
