Your invitation to Forum 2017
This year marks the 10th anniversary of the Future Firm Forum! From humble beginnings, the event has now matured into one of the most engaging events in the forward-thinking lawyer's calendar.
With the legal services industry changing so rapidly, the Forum is more relevant than ever. So, why not come and join us this October for a fabulous week-end at magical Millbrook, near Queenstown, New Zealand!
Each year, the Forum attracts law firm leaders, senior associates and managers to learn from world-class speakers about the latest developments affecting the legal services industry and to network with like-minded professionals.
This year, I'm delighted to welcome an outstanding line-up of speakers. On the Friday afternoon, Kate Billing and Paul Leacock of boutique leadership practice Blacksmith will lead a workshop designed to prepare us for the future and enhance our leadership skills at a personal and collective level.
On Saturday, John Chisholm and Gene Turner will rev us up as they turn the spotlight on pricing and technology. Finally, we will close with an incredible talk by the 'Face of New Zealand', Ngahi Bidois.
Apart from the day sessions, there is much networking and fun to be had in the evenings with dinners at Japanese restaurant Kobe and Amisfield Bistro included in your registration fee. Photos from 2016 will give you a flavour of what's in store!
Delegates attending the Forum will be eligible to earn 9 hours CPD.
Fred Hollows Foundation
Every year we raise money for a nominated charity. This year, the Fred Hollows Foundation is the beneficiary. I invite all delegates to support this worthy cause.
Registration is now open. Register by 31 July and take advantage of the early bird rates.
A big thank you to our sponsors and collaborators this year. I look forward to welcoming them, - and you to the best Future Firm Forum ever!

“The 2016 Future Firm Forum was fabulous! I loved the smaller forum setting as it meant I got to know the other attendees so much better. We were able to discuss our firms in a safe and supportive environment and learn from each other.”
