"Nevin’s fast paced detailed and funny presentation arms our
graduate students with countless critical questions for new
businesses they join about their intellectual property, like where
is it and how have you protected it?"
"Having difficulty finding a patent/intellectual property
attorney who speaks English? Nevin’s your man. Using examples of
intellectual property that everyone knows and recognizes, Nevin lays
out this complex area with spirit and fun. Just don’t get him
started on the glory days of Navy football."

"As a speech coach, I am always thrilled to hear a speaker who
practices all the things I preach. Nevin Shaffer is such a speaker.
I had the pleasure of hearing Nevin address the Technology Advisory
Group at Austin’s Metropolitan Club. The hour was early and his talk
was on "Intellectual Property Rights." Given the subject, my hopes
were not high. His presentation could have been technical, dry and
full of jargon like so many I hear in the high tech community.
Instead it was lively, funny and extremely informative. I was
totally captured by his style, laughed out loud at several stories
and left remembering his main points. What more can an audience
Although Nevin used slides effectively, he did not "hide" behind
them. Bullet points were not the center of his presentation, he was.
To illustrate his points, he shared compelling anecdotes, told
personal stories and painted vivid word pictures. Best of all, he
was warm, witty, knowledgeable and passionate about his subject.
Nevin does everything a good communicator should do and does it
exceptionally well. I highly recommend Nevin as a speaker who not
only connects with audiences, but educates and entertains them as
