PLL-Summit IV: SOS: Shaping Our Success
Saturday, July 13, 2013, 8 a.m. – 5 p.m.
Sheraton Seattle Hotel & Towers (Headquarters hotel)
1400 6th Ave, Seattle, WA
The PLL Summit, now in its fourth year, continues as a vehicle for examining the impact and opportunities presented by change. Last year, we looked at changes in the business and practice of law and envisioned what those changes mean for the future. This year, we explore how to take charge, shaping ourselves as well as the services we provide to meet these new world demands.
The day starts with a keynote address graciously sponsored by Thomson Reuters. Bruce MacEwen, more popularly known as Adam Smith, Esq., grabbed the attention of law firm leaders in 2012 with his “Growth is Dead” series, which was recently published as a book.
The morning continues with a panel discussion addressing librarian roles: how do we identify, adopt and promote the roles that add value to our organizations?
Lunch, sponsored by Wolters Kluwer Law & Business, will provide time for networking and insights into the legal market from the very special and no doubt humorous perspective of David Lat, Managing Editor, Above The Law.
In the afternoon, interactive break-out sessions will investigate the practical aspects of social media, the art of branding and the user experience. The sessions will be repeated twice so that each participant can benefit from two out of the three programs.
In order to provide access to a wide audience, we have secured a venue that can accommodate up to 300 attendees. We encourage members to register early so they can be a part of this invaluable one-day conference. The registration cost is $199.
