About this program:

Having your ideas stolen is a bad thing; being sued is even worse.  Intellectual Property can account for 1/3 or more of your company’s value. Cash in on assets you may not even recognize, and avoid costly litigation.


In this fast-moving program, you will learn:


The 5 Pillars of IP Value.


How to protect your ideas, innovations, and brand from theft.


How to avoid being sued, or worse yet, put out of business.


How to create an inventory of your most valuable IP assets.


A simple system to recognize, prioritize and maximize business value.

The program includes a workbook related to the topics and a copy of his new book, The Business Owners Guide to Intellectual Property, that complements the material in the program and is a great resource for members.
