The Aspire network 

Aspire is a free networking and professional development group for in-house lawyers in the early stages of their legal career. For more information about the group, please visit our Aspire page.

Why attend?

Aspire training events focus on both soft skills and legal skills, arming you with the tools you need to succeed in your in-house career. Attending this event will also count towards your CPD requirements.

Who are the speakers?

Consultant Emma Wilson will be running a session on how to develop your networking skills and promote yourself effectively. You will take away practical skills for creating the compelling profile and strong network you need to boost your influence in-house.

Claire Sng, an IP lawyer at DLA Piper, will be discussing the importance of brand protection. Using her extensive experience in this area, she will be sharing practical insights and tips for protecting the IP of your business.

Our guest speaker, Stephen McCartney, Director of Information Governance and DPO at Royal Mail, concludes the event by providing an invaluable insight into the key skills required by in-house lawyers to be successful in their careers.

The event is followed by a drinks and networking session providing an opportunity to meet with other Aspire members and the speakers.
