SUMMARY

This year the theme of the conference is the ‘year of the underdog.’ We want to celebrate those who have succeeded against the odds as well as discuss why we need to encourage underdogs to rise through the ranks within our own businesses.

We want to show that it is not just the large and powerful who succeed.

We will be looking at and learning from businesses and people who are going against the flow, and learning how and why they have triumphed against the odds.

We will examine innovation in the legal world and how you can encourage innovation within your own firm.

With ‘Diversity and Inclusion’ being a key issue we will consider how to retain and inspire your female talent.

We will celebrate the mould breakers and those who challenge the status quo. You need that spirit in your business and we will show you why.
