Reinventing yourself: recognising decision points in your career
Room C2.5, Convention Centre, Level 2


Senior Lawyers' Committee (Lead)


Career paths can take dramatically different turns, sometimes suddenly, leaving one feeling powerless and unprepared for change. At the same time, there is much that we can do to take control of the direction of our professional lives if we learn to recognise key decision points and take the actions necessary to meet and benefit from new challenges and opportunities. A diverse panel of distinguished speakers will discuss successful strategies for spotting forks in the road and adding new dimensions to careers in law.
