Warren S. Reid to be a featured speaker with Attorney Larry Kunin at the 2006 Technology Law Institute in Atlanta, GA - Tuesday, October 17, 2006
Featured Speaker: "Pre-litigation CPR - Reviving the Drowning Large-Scale IT Project" introduces Mr. Reid's 4-tier, 13 step model that focuses on what actions must be taken to turn around, overcome and compensate for project management, methodology, technology and people deficiencies and issues in live projects -- before you throw up your hands and move to litigation!

Below is what one senior executive of a major financial institution wrote about the presentation:

"Dear Mr. Kunin,

I've been practicing technology law for over 20 years (since before we had technology), and thought that you and Warren Reid gave one of the most useful presentations yesterday that I've ever seen. Having just been through exactly that sort of situation with one of my clients, all I could think as we went through the "He said, she said list" was - They didn't tell me they were being interviewed for this talk!..."
