Speaker Bio
Marc is an accomplished legal operations expert with a diverse and unorthodox background. He quickly made a name for himself working on automation projects for the Queensland Government, where he caught the attention of global giant Cargill. Marc soon found himself working closely with their in-house counsel, gaining exposure to a wide range of legal areas including litigation. In 2022 he transitioned to Nutrien's Australian business, focusing on developing post-acquisition and post-COVID in-house legal services.

Marc firmly believes that individuals can thrive when they are empowered to handle tasks themselves, provided they have access to well-designed processes that instil confidence and effectively manage risk. He maintains that supporting colleagues through legal workflows fosters personal and professional growth and development.

While the legal industry has traditionally been cautious about embracing process change and automation, leaders are increasingly open to exploring the potential of digitisation and reimagining processes. Marc's unique experience and practical insights bring a refreshing and valuable perspective to these discussions.
