If you’ve paid to go to Fest, take one of the specialty certifications. It's free with your admission to Fest. Even if you haven’t studied, the act of taking the test is a useful learning experience and will help you pass in the future.

TOP 3 Takeaways From Relativity Fest 2018
  • Relativity Fest is no longer just a user conference, it is a trade show. It is now the trade show for e-discovery focused legal technologists and attorneys, with over 2100 attendees this year. There was not a seat in the house for the keynote—standing room only.
  • In 2017 there were only 40 Relativity Masters; in 2018 that doubled to 80+ Masters. Of the 148 who hold Relativity Expert status, 147 were only one certification away from Master status. Expect a surge of Relativity Master talent into the market in 2019. This will make a wealth of new people much more marketable and appealing for employers. The value of Expert and Master status is beginning to matter in the market for both companies who employ and the individual who holds the certification.
  • Re-invent yourself. Legal and technology is not just e-discovery anymore, it is privacy and cybersecurity as well. Continue to learn more disciplines and keep re-inventing yourself. There was a ton of security and privacy related content in the Fest session agenda.

Details and specificity are the difference between someone who may know what they are talking about and someone who can talk about what they know.

Top 3 Ways To Talk About What You Know
  • Tell a story. Talk about what you have done, not what you know.
  • Get in the weeds (with everyone). Sometimes talking in such specificity that you go over someone’s head is a good thing. Articulate the nuance.
  • Rehearse. Practice makes perfect and if you think you are always best impromptu, think again. Repetition leads to ritual which leads to recitation.
