Getting a "seat at the table" is often challenging for legal marketers. The partnership structure of the legal profession combined with analytical and skeptical traits of most attorneys require marketers to prove themselves before they can win the trust and approval to be successful at their job.

This program will discuss the skills required to earn the role of the trusted advisor, and the steps that legal marketers can take at each step of their career – coordinator, manager, director, chief – to master those skills.

The program will address the traits of:
  • Communicating Effectively – knowing how to “speak” to a lawyer audience
  • Generating Ideas – being a problem solver rather than a problem seer
  • Building Gravitas – gaining confidence and knowing how to take a stand on an issue
  • Managing Projects – knowing how to get the job done
  • Building tactical support/buy-in – getting the backing to get projects off the ground
