Editorial by Matt Bud from the November 23, 2020 Newsletter

Every once in a while I get an assignment for The FECG that draws more than its fair share of attention. I think our all time high a few years ago was an assignment that drew 225 responses.

And, with all that talent to choose from, those who provide the clearest presentation of their credentials are the ones we are most likely to send to our client for consideration. To be very honest, it’s hard to justify forcing our client to “read between the lines” when you have so many better submissions. Here [ Read more… ]

How to Develop a Powerful and Rememberable Elevator Pitch!

You step into an elevator. After you, a well-dressed person also enters. You recognize the person as the President of the Company you always wanted to work at. The person hits the 7th floor elevator button and says “hello” to you. Can you tell the President who you are, what do you do and the benefits companies get from your work and leave a lasting impression before the elevator door opens on the 7th floor? With a well-crated and practiced elevator pitch you sure can.

Please join Marty Latman, FENG Co-Chairman, on November 25, 2020 as he presents “How to Develop a Powerful and Rememberable Elevator Pitch”. During this presentation, Marty will discuss the following things you need to know about an elevator pitch:

1. What it really is and what is its purpose?
2. What are the basics of the pitch?
3. How you should construct and deliver it?

Marty Latman, called by many people, the “Best Networker” they know, is a People Helper and Match Maker. He is the Managing Partner of Latman Advisory Services LLC. In addition to providing business consulting services to organizations, he trains, teaches, advises and support individuals in different industries with various disciplines in techniques to help them successfully execute their job search campaign.

Topic: “Blockchain Based” Contract Negotiation and Recording Application [DocuWalk]

Speakers: Chao Cheng Shorland, Founder & CEO Of Shelter Zoom and Emily Hong, Account Executive, DocuWalk Enterprise Team

ShelterZoom
The ShelterZoom Company was founded in 2017 by Allen Alishahi and Chao Cheng-Shorland who wanted to bring real estate transactions up to the level that consumers of today expect. They have since created the world’s first tokenized, industry-agnostic digital contract platform to advance deal, contract and transaction management in the online space. As first-movers in this space they have had the privilege of claiming vital patents, extensive press coverage, and the ability to capitalize on the momentum of their initial product. [DocuWalk]

DocuWalk
With the launch of their DocuWalk application, ShelterZoom has made great strides in developing distributed, intelligent and interoperable records, agreements, and contracts with their patent-pending technology called the “Contract of Things™ (CoT)™. As a result, both business and consumers will enjoy tremendously improved auditability, efficiency, accuracy, security, and trust.

DocuWalk not only enables the execution and management of individual contracts and agreements, it also allows for them to become infinitely interconnected and interoperable across the entire network. The DocuWalk platform leverages its patent-pending technology, a new type of smart contract, to overcome limitations presented in traditional contracts by fully digitizing all elements of a contract; DocuWalk further tokenizes contracts to enable transferability, traceability, tradability and portability. CoT opens the potential to redefine a new era of business relationships, transactions, and marketplaces.

Speakers' bios:

Chao Cheng-Shorland

In just two years Chao has expanded the company's footprint to several countries outside the U.S. and continues to oversee its global expansion.
