Last week, on Wednesday 24th June, our event focussed around risk management and we heard Emma Dickin, LexisNexis’ In-house, Risk & Compliance Specialist present ‘Risk management: 5 key priorities for organisations during the coronavirus pandemic’. She provided key insights from her work as a risk specialist, and gave tips on how to navigate the in-house counsel role with confidence during the pandemic. Click here for a round-up of some of her key takeaways

 

Events take place each Thursday between 5:30pm and 6:15pm. Each session is bite-sized, as we realise a lot of legal departments are even busier than normal.

 

This week we focus on Professional Development: Supporting you succeed – how to advance your career in these uncertain times. 

Get invaluable career development insights from our general counsel and in-house lawyers as they share their advice in a series of TED-style presentations.

This will be followed by interactive breakout sessions facilitated by your peers from the Aspire Advisory Board to discuss your experiences and share learnings and top tips.
