Workshop A: You Can’t Facebook Your Firm – Can You?

Clarissa Rayward – Director, Brisbane Family Law Centre

As a finalist in the Young Entrepreneur of the Year Awards in 2012, 2013 and 2014, Clarissa is an entrepreneur who has changed the face of family law practice in Australia, using social media as one of the platforms to do this.

During this workshop, Clarissa will draw on her personal experience in running a small business to discuss;

  • Setting goals for a successful marketing strategy
  • The power of your brand
  • Creating the right social media strategy to grow your profile and increase your client relationships (Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, Twitter, YouTube) and;
  • Some helpful do’s and don’ts for social media marketing

Delegates will walk away with knowledge on appropriate social media platforms, why their practice should use social media and how to build a sustainable plan to meet their business goals.

Workshop B – The Future Of Your Firm – Culture, Performance and Productivity

Tony Wilson – Performance Lab

To help people and teams do their best work, Law Firms need to improve the way they manage people to create the environment for their people to thrive. In this workshop, we focus on two important aspects of building high performance within Law Firms:

  • We look at how we lead people so that we create the environment for people to show up and do their best work, and
  • We look at how individuals need to manage themselves to be completely productive in the 21st Century.

You’ll learn about the science of high performance, and how it explains how and why we perform at our best. This unique combination of science and management makes leaders re-think their management approach, and the way they approach their work every day.

Member Price (per workshop): $395.00 (inc. GST)Non-Member Price (per workshop: $495.00 (inc. GST)
