Mark Rigotti has spent over 10 years in senior leadership roles in law firms including the last 6 years as Global CEO of Herbert Smith Freehills. He will be discussing his lessons learned from those experiences - both successes and failures. There will be some reflections on how to be effective in leading people in a professional services environment as well as the 101 other elements that make up the complexity of leading professional services firms. Mark will also provide his view on the relationship between CEO’s and CMO’s and how he believes they can work together in the most effective manner. His leadership touchstones include objectives:

  • To professionalise leadership and management – to make it more 'business like' and step away from the feudal systems of the past, so as to compete.
  • To elevate the role and contribution of Leadership – both formal and informal and to make leadership development purposeful and effective, so as to leverage leadership to improve performance and sustainability.
  • To drive a high performance culture – one that is constantly seeking improvement year on year, so as to lift performance and improve market position
  • To get change ready with a culture of appropriate innovation – not painful conservatism, so as to continually adapt to survive and thrive.

It promises to be a very informative session and we hope to see you there!
