Previous General Counsel Summit | London | 23 May 2018


Our GC guest speakers gave us amazing Talks about their personal career journeys.  One of our GC guest speakers said:

“The whole event was such a credit to you Colin, so professionally executed and everyone there was cooing about how your events are the best ones they go to. I don’t think you realize how unique and how valued your events are in comparison to the usual run of the mill seminars and talks by law firms and industry bodies.” [Comment received from one of our General Counsel guest speakers on 24 May 2018]
