On Monday 29th April, Osborne Clarke hosted an impressive panel of thought-leaders from legal and tech gathered together with an audience of the West of England’s legal IT Directors, CTO’s and CIO’s to debate ‘Agile Working’.
The event focused on the needs and interests of law firms, with a solid emphasis on the future – with sharing and collaborating as a means to help unlock problems, identify solutions and move forward.
Chaired by Chris Bull, Executive Director, Kingsmead Square, the event began with an introduction from Matt Delargy, Head of Sales at Datasharp Integrated Communications followed by a series of short presentations from Barry Gipson, Head of Operational Development, Osborne Clarke; Ben Neo, Head of Professional Services, Mitel; Steve Sumner, IT Director, Taylor Vinters and Will Wood, Head of Pre-Sales, Datasharp Integrated Communications.
During the presentations, the panellists shared their experiences to date and raised some interesting questions surrounding just how agile law firms might become and what obstacles might stand in their way.
These talking points were explored in much more detail during the lively Q&A and, of course, over a drink afterwards. The raffle for an iPad Mini was won by Barry Gipson. Congratulations Barry!
Ben Neo, Head of Professional Services at Mitel commented:
A Q&A followed whereby the delegates asked the panel questions and also shared their own thoughts, challenges and experiences.
As the least experienced person in the room when it comes to Technology, I found the event very thought-provoking and I was inspired by the many positive stories of successfully implementing innovative change.
The event reinforced my view that Bristol can be a real contender in establishing itself as a leading hub for Legal Tech.”
The power of bringing professionals together at this level made the event a complete success. Our thanks to all who attended, to Mitel, Kingsmead Square and Taylor Vinters for supporting the event and special thanks to Osborne Clarke for being such great hosts.
