A Trillion is the New Million
The Columbus Bar will partner with the Women Lawyers of Franklin County to deliver a practical seminar, May 19, on thriving in today’s tough economy. The program, Positioning Yourself to thrive in a Difficult Economy, will address both financial issues and the mental health issues that are more likely to arise during times of increased stress.
Participants will hear from a financial planner and consultant to law firms on how you can most effectively manage your budget to ensure the biggest return on your investment. Whether you are interested in increasing your client base, trying to minimize expenses and increase profits, or trying to preserve assets with long-term strategies in mind, attendees will walk away with valuable guidance on how best to allocate your financial resources to accomplish your goals.
The seminar also features an exceptional panel of female lawyers who have successfully advanced their careers through a professional transition. Janica Pierce Tucker will lead the panel through a discussion on networking and marketing approaches that will help attendees understand how best to strengthen and maintain their practice during a tough economy. From easy-to-implement cost saving measures, adding value to your firm and clients through alternative billing practices, diversifying practice areas, and making yourself an indispensable asset to your employer. Their tips, insights, and suggestions will provide a solid foundation for helping you achieve job security and expand the opportunities available to you. Panelists include Anne Cogan, Kerry Green, Karen Phipps, and Heather Sowald.
Assistant Bar Counsel Alysha Clous will address the human effects of the economy on your career and your mental well-being. Learn to identify the warning signs, how to help colleagues through times of distress, and take steps to protect yourself.
