Announcing the launch of the new group for small law firms and sole practitioners.
The Yorkshire Lawyer Leadership Group is an independent leadership development forum for legal businesses based in Yorkshire.
Tim Stone, 3volution ‘I would recommend the group to prospective members because it’s very helpful to be able to discuss issues with peers.’
Following on from the success of the Yorkshire Lawyer Leadership Group (which has been running for 8 years), Lisa Lister (Progress Marketing Ltd) is delighted to be joined by Ann Page (Yorkshire Courses for Lawyers) to launch a second group aimed specifically at the small legal practices and sole practitioners sector.
This new Forum includes small firms, sole practitioners, (who work on their own or run a small practice) and consultant solicitors who may be attached to a virtual or ‘real’ firm.
Its focus is to provide leadership support in a confidential arena where like-minded lawyers can discuss with others the challenges of running a legal practice.
Michelle Hazlewood, JG&P Solicitors ‘I enjoy attending the group because of the insightful discussions on relevant topics. It provides an opportunity to have open communication within a direct and relevant peer group.’
Zoe Robinson, Raworths Solicitors‘ It is an opportunity to share and discuss problems in a safe forum and learn about topical issues/trends. It can be reassuring to find that others experience similar problems and hear how they deal with these issues.’
The format is 8-11am and includes breakfast and informal networking followed by facilitated discussions on issues and challenges raised by group members.
Members will feel supported and able to sense check their ideas based on other peoples’ experiences and grow their legal practices using peer group feedback.
There will also be opportunities to provide business referrals to members within the Forum.
The Forum will be chaired by Lisa and Ann and will meet 6 times a year at Carrwood Park, Swillington Common Farm, Selby Road Leeds LS15 4LG
The dates are as follows:
- 3rd October 2018
- 21st November 2018
- 23rd January 2019
- 13th March 2019
- 22nd May 2019
- 10th July 2019
The cost for the first session is £150+vat which would then be deducted from the annual £895+vat membership should you chose to join. We look forward to welcoming you to the Forum
