Changing Perceptions Breakout Session is a Must!

Guest post authored by Marcia Burris, Senior Manager, Firm Library Services, Ogletree, Deakins, Nash, Smoak and Stewart, PC, Greenville SC

This year’s Summit offers extraordinary opportunities for professional growth.  As Joan mentioned in her recent “How to Sit at the Table: Lean In” On Firmer Ground blog post, a goal of this year’s Summit is to help participants shape their success by defining the roles and developing the services that add value to our organizations.

Among the outstanding programs offered this year, the afternoon breakout session Changing Perceptions: Selling your Role as a Strategic Partner will take participants through the process of defining and managing our professional reputations as strategic partners within our law firms.

Our speaker, Sally R. Phillips, is an executive career coach and human resources consultant, and a former employment attorney and HR executive.  If you have ever wondered what a career coach would say to you, you won’t want to miss this session!

To learn how to register for the Summit click here or visit the AALL Annual Meeting site.  Don’t delay. Deadline to register for the Summit is June 17th!

We look forward to seeing you in Seattle!
