“Tough Love Part 2” session confirmed for NCRA’s 2019 Business Summit

Mike Miller

NCRA member and past NCRA Director Mike Miller, FAPR, RDR, CRR, a freelance court reporter from Houston, Texas, has been confirmed as a presenter at NCRA’s 2019 Business Summit being held Feb. 1-3 at the Manchester Grand Hyatt in beautiful San Diego, Calif.

Miller is known for his popular Depoman.com forum, which provided court reporters with a medium to share insights and address common issues from 1997 to 2015, as well as his Tough Love session. As a Business Summit presenter, he will lead a seminar called “Tough Love Part 2.” According to Miller, this session will challenge most sacred beliefs about the business of court reporting with a focus on why being stuck in 1985 isn’t going to alleviate any of the issues faced by agencies and reporters in the 21st century.

“Everyone in the court reporting and captioning professions is a business, from the largest international agencies to officials to freelancers to CART providers,” said Miller, who is known for his candor. “Do yourself a favor and learn from the experts on how to run your business.”
