TRANSATLANTIC PHONE SERVICE ANNIVERSARYYou’ll be delighted to hear that my Bloomsday-honoring webinar with Martin Underwood of Life Productions came off without a hitch.

Less successful, alas, was the process of recording a trans-Atlantic webinar held across “the pond” (as we trans-Atlantic types refer to “the puddle” that separates our nations) via the new-fangled inter webs.

The first webinar was, I’m certain, much-savored by the dozens of participants on the line while it was taking place…but the recording turned out rather…”dodgy” (as Martin might say.)

So we did it again. And this time the video came out…uh…”yucky” (as I might say.)bell-victoria

But rest assured, webinar fans – all is well!  We (meaning Martin’s technical folks) managed to pair the audio from the re-do of the webinar with the slides from the original webinar and the final, hybrid outcome is a very watchable, lively and I think useful hour or so of honest talk about career change for lawyers.

And so, without further ado…Here it is:

Many thanks to Martin, and Life Productions, and his technical wiz, Luka (who saved the day!) and to all the lawyers and legal professional folks who participated in the original incarnation of the webinar (we had a big, diverse crowd tune in, which was gratifying.)

If you’re interested in continuing to explore the stuff we’re talking about in the webinar, you might check out Life Production’s online course.  They have a lot of interesting ideas around how to find work that’s right for you, whether in law or in another field.

The Life Productions folks also did a great job of organizing everything – all that slide-producing and agenda-conceiving and scheduling and planning and so forth that I’m not especially “keen” on handling myself (I mostly like the talking and receiving accolades part.)

And especial thanks – or, uh, “cheers” – to all our UK participants tuning in from Fair Albion. I look forward to continuing our “special relationship.”

So stay calm and carry on – and find that job that really makes you happy!

james-joyceAre your Bloomsday plans still not nailed down?

Are you (like Molly Bloom), just a girl (or boy) who can’t say no?

Then say yes.  Say yes.  You will Yes.  Say yes you say yes you will Yes.

Say Yes to a free webinar I’m doing with the lovely and rather fetching (photo below) Martin Underwood, of Life Productions.  He’s English and a handsome devil and I said yes, yes I will Yes…upon the condition that we keep things fast-paced, scintillating and titillating – a stream of consciousness, whisking past like a day in Dublin, or (say) getting kissed under the Moorish wall.  And he said…Yes (my mountain flower) Yes.  1432209740745

So, it’s happening the free webinar, on – Tuesday, June 16th, 2015 at 7pm GMT / 2pm ET / 11am PT – Bloomsday, for you Joyceans out there.  And it shall be ravishing, this free webinar of ours.

Here are the deets.  It’s entirely free – like the best of modernist prose – exuberant, unbridled, decidedly salacious.  This is not something you want to miss.

Which is hard to argue with.Davidson-Ireland-Gay-Marriage-1200

I’ll be there.

So say yes yes say yes you will Yes.

dan_avatar_small (1)My friend, Dan Lukasik, who created the Lawyers with Depression website, asked me to post some information on his up-coming webinar, on Friday, February 7th, 2014 at 3 p.m. (E.S.T.), for lawyers with depression. I’ll let Dan take it from here:

======

Are You a Lawyer Who Has Problems Getting Things Done When Depressed?

If you’re a lawyer who struggles with depression, you’re not alone. Studies show that lawyers suffer from depression at a rate twice (20%) that of the general population. When put in perspective, that means that 240,000 of this country’s 1.2 million lawyers are struggling with depression right now.

These findings are not about sadness, the blues or even burnout, but true clinical depression. According to the Mayo Clinic, to be diagnosed with major depression by a health care professional you need to have some of the following symptoms most of the day, every day:

Feelings of sadness, emptiness or unhappiness
