About this Event

"Culture eats strategy for breakfast." – Peter Drucker

No matter how well-designed your strategic plan is, it will fall flat unless your team shares the appropriate culture. So, how can heads of legal build and foster a robust, collaborative, and inclusive in-house legal team culture? And why is it so important to do so? 

Juno Legal cordially invites you to an exclusive Juno Learning event where experienced culture builders and in-house legal leaders discuss Building team culture. Panellists will share the knowledge, strategies, and practical tools they use to successfully shape the culture of their teams – and maybe a few good war stories in there too.  

This workshop is open to General Counsel/Chief Legal Officers. If you would like to bring a senior member of your legal team, please let us know and we will advise if space becomes available.

12 - 12:30 pm:    Light lunch and networking

12:30 - 1:30 pm: Panel discussion.

We look forward to connecting and learning with you all. 

A light lunch will be provided by Juno Legal. Please advise if you have any dietary, accessibility or support requests.
