General Counsel, Chief Legal Officers, Corporate Counsel leaders as well as leaders in private practice will be attending the GC Futures Summit on November 1st.

 A new Super GC is emerging, the company consigliere, one who knows the business and is not simply involved in legal operations. As the number of these GCs increase, they are becoming increasingly confident of their position and aspirational in their ambitions. The GC Futures Summit 2016 will look at how these top performers run their departments as well as become highly influential in the business.

In the light of some of the challenges in this fast-changing world, the event will also look how Brexit will impact a variety of sectors as well as consider other clouds on the horizon – from cybercrime to data protection and privacy issues.

With management at the heart of running a law department, what improvements can be made? Is technology key to efficiencies and how can outsourcing contribute to delivery?

Topics will include change management, business transformation, GCs as business leaders, the future of law departments, the impact of technology including AI and robotics, legal service providers, In-house as value creating entities, shifting and complex business and regulatory environments, the ‘doing more for less’ model, GCs as CEO and more.


“An excellent array of speakers and topics that really covered the themes of how GC’s can innovate, influence and inspire the future. A very helpful input into my thinking about what a world class in house legal team looks like”
Carmel Mulhern, Group GC, Telstra

“Good Structure and ideas to the future of the GC role and legal department”
Liz Walker, GC, BT Global Services

“Very well done programme with an impressive list of speakers and GC attendees”

“In its infancy, but good potential opportunity to meet other GCs and providers of value add services”

“Excellent programme and speakers. It is rare to get the opportunity to think about how we do what we do rather than what we do”


Based on the success of last year’s event and building on the positive feedback we received, you will not want to miss it this year. The day will be a mix of panel discussions, presentations and participative discussions. It will be accompanied by an exceptional catering service that will satisfy your appetite while you engage in networking pursuits. If you attended the previous event then you already know what a valuable and inspiring day this is – and we look forward to seeing you again in 2016.
