Really useful for a starting point of what you need to consider. Lots to think about’.


Interesting and thought provoking in all the right ways. Has reinvigorated me to tackle old challenges in a new way’


Very well organised and presentation was fantastic.

a really useful and informative course with many practical examples across the board

The course was informative and made me think about myself, my role in the firm and how the people I work with can be developed to get more out of them and untimately develop the firm.

This course was a refreshing and clear way to look into how law firms (of all shapes and sizes) can run and equips you with the knowledge to approach this. Highly recommend.

Fantastic course. Perfect timing for me and very enlightening.

The course content was well delivered and very helpful on a practical level.
