In-House Training Programs Are Customized For Both Public and Private Sector Employees

PROGRAM PHILOSOPHY
Objective: The ultimate objective is to protect your public image and mitigate your liability when employees use social media and smartphones. Our programs empower each employee to post comments and upload pictures without liability. More specifically, I will deliver hard-hitting information that reflects 30  years of advanced specialized media law training experience. The new skills they receive keep them legally safe throughout their career.

Our specialized strategies target hidden liabilities and nuances created by new federal and state social media speech laws. Courts consider employees using social media as broadcasters and have a higher standard of care when sending electronic messages. Our advanced specialized social media and smartphone liability training satisfies this  standard. What makes this program so different from other social media training, is that I focus on media law not labor law. You learn to navigate the hidden liabilities that others overlook.

METHODOLOGY
I use my 30 years of media law training experience to make a connection with your employees and cut through the legal jargon. I use a live seminar or distant learning component and comprehensive follow-up materials (i.e. podcasts, webinars, and access to Attorney Fiedelholtz by email or periodic phone conferences for a year for questions), to give your employees career-saving skills for the rest of their career.

I give each employee access to expert media law training on their own schedule. They can use my online materials 24/7 to become educated on their own time at work or at home.  Additionally, each department can conduct their own in-house group training with my materials and use our e-mail and phone support program for any questions that arise.

THE TRAINING DIFFERENCE
How Is This Course Different from Your Previous Training?
- I'm not just an attorney, I'm a specialist in electronic media law;
- I'm not just an attorney, I'm a professional media law trainer;
- My strategies focus on media law, not labor law;
- Close hidden liabilities and loopholes in the new laws others overlook
- Create competent broadcasters, not rogue social media users

When you're determining your ROI, here are the factors you need to consider:
- The average social media related lawsuit is around $500,000+
- The value of an attorney on retainer for a year would be around $75,000+
- You are receiving 30 years of experience from one of the leading media attorneys
- An employee's mistake can cause long-term damage to your public image
- Social media posts and pictures are used to impeach your credibility in court
- Try telling a judge you can't afford an expert media attorney, but you can afford a $500.000 lawsuit
