The proliferation of technology across organisations and legal departments alongside a long-term shift to remote working means that the key skills and competencies for a successful career have changed.

During this session we will share:
• How to maintain and build relationships via digital platforms 
• How to make an impact in an online meeting – as both a presenter or participant
• Top tips for how to conduct yourself during an online meeting 
• Practical advice on behaviours to avoid during online interactions 

• How to stand out from a crowd and impress superiors during a collective online meeting

We are delighted to be joined by Luan de Burgh, Founding Director of de Burgh Training Ltd. Luan has over a decade’s experience in helping senior legal professionals as well as well-known figures in media and politics deliver messages effectively, develop strong business relationships and leave a positive lasting impression.


Career Feature: Accelerate your career with tips from the top

Our next event will feature Sally Swift, Director, Global Legal Operations and innovation at NBCUniversal. We are incredibly privileged to have Sally join our session to share her career story and provide invaluable insights and practical tips on how to grow your legal career. 

Sally has spent her career working in the legal sector, most recently leading a busy legal operations department where she had responsibility for the strategic leadership and operational management of over 260 staff.  

She was recently recognised as a finalist for ‘Inspirational Woman of the Year’ at a regional business awards and was the national winner of the Chartered Institute of Legal Executives ‘Award for Lifelong Learning’ in 2018.  This was in recognition for her commitment and dedication to championing access to the legal profession, creating new inclusive qualifications for legal apprentices entering the profession.  

Introducing Aspire - Professional development and networking for junior in-house counsel
Are you starting out in your in-house career? This forum is designed just for you.

We know that starting out in your legal career in-house isn't like being a junior in a law firm. You haven't got a firm full of lawyers to turn to for advice or support. You're not alone. There are many others embarking on their in-house legal career, in exactly the same position.

We were approached by the in-house community to provide a space for you to connect and learn from each other - a chance to compare notes, swap stories and sharpen your legal knowledge and commercial skills.

Aspire is a free networking and professional development group for in-house lawyers in the early stages of their legal career. We are passionate about supporting each other to succeed by providing a forum and running regular networking events to share experiences and ideas and sharpen our legal and commercial skills.
