Joshua Kubicki, Chief Strategy Officer at Seyfarth Shaw
Tuesday, May 16

Pricing, project management and practice management professionals frequently are the first to identify new opportunities for growth within a law firm’s underlying business model. To accomplish change, these professionals often must work against firm-defined roles to become an 'intrapreneur.' Joshua Kubicki, an intraprenuer for most of his professional life, will share his successes and failures in designing and launching new business models within mature organizations, including in-house departments, AmLaw 200 firms and global content providers. You will walk away with a change-maker road map that explores a broad range of disciplines and can help move your firm culture and environment forward. 

Kim Craig, PMP, Marketing Director of Lean Solutions will also be contributing to the P3 Keynote. Craig leads one of the industry's most mature legal project management, process improvement and technology consultant teams.
