Beyond hackathons

Moving lawyers beyond a superficial engagement with change

The role of corporate counsel is often characterised by unsustainable workloads caused, in part, by high volumes of low-value tasks, which prevent teams from the impactful work they seek to deliver.

During this session, Anthony reveals the challenges faced by lawyers in embracing change, and explores what legal leaders can do to ensure their change initiatives deliver lasting impact.
