How to Promote Yourself Using Social Media for HCRCA

This presentation was for the Hawaii Court Reporters and Captioners Association. These are the fine folks who work in the courtroom transcribing the proceedings, in lawyer offices taking depositions, and providing captioning for the hearing-impaired. Where would be without them?!

Here is a transcript of the slides I used, which was followed by real time web surfing looking at real life examples and Q&A. I will update with links after the presentation. You can download the PDF of my slides here. View and share the slides on
