Session Number: 822
Date: Fri, Nov 15th, 2019
Time: 2:30 PM - 3:15 PM

Description:

This interactive panel session will feature senior executives in marketing and business development who have effectively led teams and firms through times of change and uncertainty.  The legal industry is undergoing unprecedented change – some firms will flourish in these challenging times whereas others will not.  The difference between the two often comes down to having a positive, and opportunistic, mindset.  Moderated by Jeff Berardi, former CMO of K&L Gates and current CMO at global management consulting firm Ankura, the discussion will explore the various ways that busy professionals can focus on and prioritize key goals and initiatives, manage through distraction and stress, and find balance between work and personal lives.  Broken into two sections devoted to professional and personal topics, the panel session will cover the following subjects, among others:

 

  • How to spot opportunities and threats brought about by industry disruption
  • Building a resilient mindset and how to effectively manage stress
  • Managing dysfunctional teams – within your department and outside it
  • Navigating politics within a law firm or other professional services organization
  • Finding a proper balance between reactive marketing activities and strategic growth initiatives
