Global Director of Business Development and Communications at Jones Day

Conference Day 1: Saturday, October 17, 2020

Breakout One: Think Global, Act Local: Supporting Growth Through Successful Business Development and Marketing Programs That Work Around the Globe


Why did you submit to present at the 2020 LMA Annual Conference?

It’s a great opportunity to collaborate with my peers and share our experiences and knowledge with the regional legal marketing community. We don’t often have time to “give back,” and when we do, I think it’s important to contribute.

What are you hoping attendees will learn from your presentation?

I hope that attendees will take away practical tips that they can immediately use. All of us are so busy that it’s important to hear practical advice with tangible tactics that can be implemented.

What do you think is the key for success as a legal marketer today?

Adaptability, resilience and continuous learning.

What are you most looking forward to about the 2020 LMA Annual Conference?

Reconnecting with friends, meeting new colleagues and hearing about innovations in legal marketing.

Why are you excited about going to Denver?

The LMA Annual Conference is an event I look forward to every year to learn and connect with fellow legal marketers. Denver is a great location for the conference. I recall when the LMA Annual Conference was in Denver several years ago and it was a great experience.
