We will have a phenomenal guest speaker joining us for our special event.
Bjarne Tellmann, General Counsel of Pearson Plc
I am very much looking forward to having a fireside chat with Bjarne about his new book:
“Building an Outstanding Legal Team: Battle-Tested Strategies from a General Counsel”
Bjarne was our wonderful guest speaker at the Lawyers’ Business Development Club in New York.
“What a fantastic evening listening to Bjarne and Colin ‘firestyle’. Bjarne is completely inspirational – clearly incredibly intelligent, thoughtful, passionate and driven, yet with a humble approach to his success which was very compelling and thought provoking.”

Bjarne’s new book is available to purchase from Amazon and from the publisher. If you would like to purchase it, the links to it are below:
It promises to be a very informative, entertaining and enjoyable evening.
I am sure you will enjoy the evening.
