MANAGING PARTNERS FORUM
BOUTIQUE & SMALL FIRMS
16TH & 17TH AUGUST 2018
MANSION HOTEL & SPA AT WERRIBEE PARK | VIC
“Innovation distinguishes between a leader and a follower’ Steve Jobs
THEME: POSITIONING YOUR FIRM FOR THE FUTURE
The annual event for legal leaders of small and boutique firms moved north this year up to the beautiful Gold Coast at the quirky QT Hotel – a perfect setting for two days of learning and networking. The conference was an opportunity for delegates to learn new theories, expand their knowledge on legal strategy and technology and network with their peers.
The event was expertly presided by Bill Fazio from Fazio Advisory who did an amazing job over the two days of bringing the speakers on time, moderating the panel discussion and making sure the event ran smoothly.
The diverse range of speakers covered topics as varied as leadership skills, marketing, the importance of voice and the value of tuning inwards to be switched on. Simon Tupman started the day off with a brilliant overview of the changing legal landscape, covering the disruptors as well as possible solutions for a brighter future. Another of the speakers that touched
on topics relevant for firm leaders was Damian Paul from Macpherson Kelley spoke about what it is that adds value to a boutique firm and what they look for when buying small firms.
It is always reassuring to know the available options for boutique firms. Graham Le Roux also explored the options of succession planning for partners and how important it is for the long term stability of a firm. [read wrap up]
