Become a Realtime Superstar
How I made my life easier 

Shorthand for the 21st century boils down to this: write short – write fast – write clean- do it all day!

To be truly realtime capable – able to turn out fast, accurate drafts and fast certified transcripts – we need to write smarter. We have to write fast, with clean notes, for hours on end – and then turn out a fast draft transcript on demand. Ed Varallo, six-time NCRA Speed Contest champion, will outline his systematic approach to writing shorthand which is designed to require less physical effort, produce better realtime output, and thus reduce editing/scoping time. Ed shares tips and techniques that will set you on the path to unleash the Realtime Superstar inside you!


“This past Saturday, 25 reporters at Jack W. Hunt & Associates, Inc. had a three-hour plus presentation by the legendary Ed Varallo.  It’s only 8am Monday, and I’ve had more unsolicited personal and emailed thank you’s from our reporters than any other type of educational program we’ve ever tried to put on.  If you own a firm and want to encourage your reporters to improve their skills, this investment should be a no-brainer.”

Kevin Hunt,  CEO if Jack W. Hunt & Associates
