About Anita Paul
Anita was an official court reporter in the Los Angeles Municipal and Superior Courts from 1974 to 1992. During this time, her love of teaching inspired Anita to teach evening court reporting classes for about 12 years. In 1991, Anita was instrumental in introducing the California courts to the first complete CIC (Computer Integrated Courtroom) environment, including video synchronization, wherein she reported back-to-back daily trials for over a year with her partner, Pat Cuneo, networked to 11 computers. At this time Anita researched, developed, and perfected her Realtime skills.
She has given numerous seminars and presentations on this exciting CIC technology to reporters, judges, court administrators, and attorneys worldwide, which led to her interest in developing her speaking expertise by becoming an active member of the National Speakers Association. This background led to the creation of her successful, hands-on, world-renowned workshops and seminars since 1993, fulfilling her personal commitment and life vision to making a positive, meaningful difference in people’s lives. She has expanded her training to include a transition to broadcast captioning and C.A.R.T. stenocaptioning. As of May 21, 2007, Anita became a CSP – Certified Speaking Professional, the highest designation a professional speaker can earn from the National Speakers Association.
Anita has continued developing her passion of creating personal value to others’ lives by becoming a certified life coach, soon-to-be certified as a DISC consultant, and she is a certified Fred Pryor / Career Track trainer on topics such as creating exceptional customer service, developing emotional intelligence, successful communication skills for women, business writing for results, and mistake-free grammar and proofreading. She runs a private coaching practice for individuals who want to grow their life skills and develop effective communication strategies.
