LMA Southwest Region Seeks Dynamic Workshop Leaders for the 2018 LMA Southwest Regional Conference

October 3 -5, 2018 in Scottsdale, Arizona. The deadline for proposals: May 15, 2018.  You will be informed by June 1, 2018 if your program idea has been accepted.  Submit your proposal here.

POWER OF THE PAST, FORCE OF THE FUTURE

This two-day conference is powered by workshops lead by multi-generational teams, such as one would see in a law firm or corporate environment. The purpose of the conference is to provide immediately-effective management and leadership tools to attendees, bringing them new ways to approach the management of highly-functioning teams and business development, marketing, and client relations functions. Workshops will cover an array of skills needed to foster collaboration, think and act strategically, and drive overall business objectives.

TWO-HOUR WORKSHOPS LED BY MULTIGENERATIONAL FACILITATORS

This highly-interactive, deep-dive conference will be exclusively comprised of two-hour workshop sessions focused on hands-on learning and real-world application. The scope of each workshop should be narrowly-focused to allow for in-depth exploration of the topic. Topics may cover any of the six pillars of the LMA body of knowledge – business development, the business of law, client services, communications, marketing management and leadership, and technology management – as well as strategic planning and skills-oriented boot camps.

Workshops will be led by at least two experienced facilitators, each a member of a different generation (Boomer, X, Millennial). Effective facilitators will recognize and take advantage of the combined wisdom and experience of their co-facilitator, as well as participants. Facilitators are encouraged to engage the audience by using process-oriented tools and techniques including worksheets, case studies, role-play, group discussion, active problem-solving, and real-time production of work-product. Participants should leave with practical skills, strategies, and materials that can be immediately used at their firm.

If you're being considered to speak, the committee will reach out to you for further information.

*Please be sure all materials, including presenter information, are ready before submitting.

The deadline for proposals: May 15, 2018.  You will be informed by June 1, 2018 if your program idea has been accepted.  Submit your proposal here.

Speaker inquiries may be directed to: Morgan Horvitz or Emily Adams at LMASWConference@legalmarketing.org.
