The Law Society of Western Australia
Level 5, 160 St Georges Terrace PERTH

This seminar is available for in person or webinar attendance.

The modern practice of law is focused on profitability and client service, which creates high demands on time and sets continuous expectations on producing high quality work. The ramifications of long hours and high expectations can result in excessive stress, and an imbalance between work and personal life amongst others.

So how do successful lawyers manage this?

Hear from John Poulsen, Principal at People, Passion, Performance who was until 31 December 2017, the Australian Managing Partner and CEO of Squire Patton Boggs, a top 10 Global Law Firm and who led the firm to be one of the fastest growing law firms in Australia.

John will discuss strategies that law firms can take to build mentally fit workplaces and what lawyers can undertake to manage themselves and manage their working environment.

Level: General

A light lunch will be provided.
