Our training and networking events are a platform for sharing guidance, best practice and insights on latest developments.
We deliver training through different media, including online webinars and podcasts for instantly accessible news, views and guidance. We do still place a premium on the collaborative benefits of face-to-face training, and we run a number of seminars throughout the year, as well as smaller roundtable discussions and bespoke briefings for particular clients.
Seminars and webinars
Our seminar/webinar programme covers “need to know” topics across the full spectrum of our practice areas, often a means of bringing our clients up to speed with significant legal or regulatory developments. Recent topics have included the Senior Managers Certification Regime, GDPR, Business Immigration, Developments in Contract Law, and Tax Disputes.
If you would like to join the mailing list for seminars/webinars on particular topics, please let us know your requirements.
We value the opportunity to collaborate with our clients in discussions on important legal or regulatory developments and topical issues at our smaller, roundtable events. Recent topics have included Contingency Planning for Brexit, Data Protection, Competition Law Compliance and Mergers and National Security. Forthcoming events will focus on Board Reshuffles and Sustainable Business. If you would like to join us, please outline your areas of interest.
Delivering training which is tailored to our clients’ individual concerns is important to us, and we recognise that large seminars do not always add value, so many of our training sessions are developed specifically for a particular client and delivered at their own offices by our client teams. These sessions can cover compliance with new law or regulation, such as GDPR, or core topics, for example, Directors’ duties, Outsourcing or Privilege. If you have a particular training request, please get in touch with your usual contact at the firm, or complete our form.
Management skills training
Based on feedback as to the importance of skills development for in-house teams, we have introduced a programme of skills training led by external trainers whom we know and trust. These sessions range from bespoke masterclasses for GCs on Influencing the Board to Presentation Skills training for in-house team members. If you are interested in taking part, please contact Rachel Wevill from our Learning and Development team, or your usual contact at the firm.
Throughout the year, we run a number of networking events designed to enable you to share insights with your peers in other organisations. Many of these events have a facilitated discussion element, and we have recently covered Corporate Governance and CSR and Diversity in this forum. Future topics include Resilience, Off-payroll Working and Contract Law issues. We add to our programme to reflect developments as they arise. Look out for news on these events throughout the year, and let us know if you would like to be invited to this programme of events.
