An Annual Event
Each year, the Future Firm Forum attracts law firm leaders, - Managing Partners, Partners, Heads of Departments, Team Leaders, Senior Associates, CEOs and Practice Managers, wanting to learn from world-class speakers and like-minded professionals about the latest developments and opportunities affecting the legal services industry. Apart from the day sessions, there is much networking and fun to be had in the evenings at the social events - all included in your registration fee.
Your host is Simon Tupman, the founder of the Future Firm Forum. Simon is a business researcher, educator and mentor to lawyers and law firms. He helps them make the most of their talents and those of the people they lead by changing mindsets to create breakthrough firms.

One of Australasia’s most experienced speakers, he has been called on by clients in 13 countries over a 25-year career. He has helped thousands of lawyers leave their mark on the world.
