Enhancing your commercial impact through building relationships

Facilitator: Mark Franklin

17 May 2023, 9am – 10am BST

This webinar is hosted as part of WIN (What In-house lawyers Need) and has been created around the feedback of our global community of in-house lawyers. WIN addresses the commercial and personal aspects of working as an in-house lawyer regardless of your location or seniority level. Register to join WIN to ensure you receive future invitations directly to your inbox.

This session has been designed to help you take a more intentional approach to developing and showcasing your commerciality, in order to enhance your contribution to organisational success as well as your professional reputation.

Behaving commercially and being perceived as commercial are two different things. Getting others to recognise our value and perceive us as commercially savvy involves developing additional skills and creating high-quality relationships with different stakeholders.

Key take-aways of this session:

  • Increase awareness of what underpins a reputation for commerciality.
  • An opportunity to evaluate your approach and identify specific strategies that will enhance the commerciality of your relationships.
  • And a practical model that provides you with a structured approach to developing relationships that showcase your commerciality.
