    NSW: Working towards being a GREAT Legal Counsel

    This event is fully booked. Please click here to register for the wait list.

    This is the first in a series of four workshops designed to give participants the skills and guidance they need to become GREAT Legal Counsel.

    As the demands and dictates on Legal Counsel continue to grow it is imperative that Legal Counsel have the skills and expertise necessary to be relevant to the businesses they support and to properly navigate the tightrope between “trusted advisor” and “business partner”.

    By increasing your understanding of your employer organisation, you will not only improve your performance as Legal Counsel, but you can also drive change across the business.

    This first workshop, focuses on “Role Purpose and Organisation Structure” and will up-skill participants with:

    1. A practical understanding of and respect for the business units they support;
    2. skills and guidance to provide “practical” and “commercial” advice that matters;
    3. the ability to better communicate with clients and colleagues in a meaningful way;
    4. knowledge and resources to better manage their careers; and
    5. improved client satisfaction and employee engagement results.

    About the presenter: Catherine Mullins

    Since obtaining her law degree in first class honors from the University of Technology, Sydney, Cate has spent the last 17 years obtaining extensive experience in business, governance and commerce – both as a lawyer in her own practice and with some of Australia’s most prestigious top tier and boutique firms, and as a general manager with one of Australia’s big 4 banking institutions. This blend of legal experience and general management roles in sales, operations, business strategy, marketing, project management, and people leadership has allowed Cate to truly understand organisations’ needs and to expertly bridge the gap between the law and the business and to truly understand the pivotal role that Legal Counsel can play to support, guide and drive change.
