9:00 AM - 10:00 AM | Opening Keynote: The Future of Legal Leadership: Influence, EQ, and Impact

How we define leadership has already begun, and will most certainly continue, to change - and change for the better. Leadership will no longer be defined strictly by KPIs, "busyness" amongst staff and hours worked, but by productivity, D&I targets, employee satisfaction and real business results. Time and time again, more businesses and General Counsel are beginning to find power in harnessing D&I, putting mental health first within their teams, and becoming influential leaders themselves. As remote working appears not to be fading, how can you put these modern leadership practices into play and use it to build a high-performing legal team for your organisation.
