The Chilli IQ – 4th Managing Partners Forum (Boutique and Small Firms) was held recently in the magnificent Mansion Hotel & Spa at Werribee Park, Victoria. The forum focused on the pressures faced by leaders of small firms as they juggle so many different roles and tasks in addition to managing their business. With the legal landscape becoming increasingly competitive, the forum investigated how important it is for these leaders to invest in more intelligent technology to drive efficiency and productivity.

We heard from Managing Partner of FCB Group, Campbell Fisher, who gave a lively presentation about building a high performance culture, and doing the right things consistently well. He gave an open and honest account of the importance of transparency, and cited this as a key factor in the success of their workplace and human resources law firm.

Alistair Marshall, Partner at Julian Midwinter & Associates, delivered an engaging session on business development and how law firms can differentiate themselves in a cluttered marketplace. He discussed how Partners of boutique and small firms need to change their approach to business development, and posed the thought-provoking question: “Would you buy from you?”. To highlight the importance of this, he took attendees through the firm’s 5 steps to a successful marketing strategy.

LawMaster continues to partner with Chilli IQ as a Bronze Sponsor.
