Building your resilience, reputation and personal networks

In conjunction with Thomson Reuters, please join us for a discussion led by experienced lawyers, on these aspects of personal effectiveness in your role as an in-house lawyer.

  • Event date: 08 September 2021 02:00 PM
  • Event type: Webinar
  • Duration: 1.5 hours

How we rise to new challenges and deal with setbacks, establish a solid reputation in our organisations and beyond and build supportive networks are all important to our personal and professional development.

In this discussion we expect to explore a range of issues relevant to this important topic, including:

  • Can you learn to be more resilient;
  • How to respond when things go wrong;
  • Rising to new challenges and operating outside your comfort zone;
  • What are the building blocks of a good reputation;
  • How can you build trust with colleagues;
  • How do I go about developing a network; and 
  • What should I expect from my network and what should they expect from me.

Leading the discussion will be our guest presenters
