Women in IP Speaker Series: A View From the Top – Perspectives of Women Leaders

12:00 pm - 1:00 pm EDT

Via Webinar

Login details will be provided prior to the event.

Effective communication is the cornerstone of a lawyer's professional responsibility. Whether communicating in the courtroom, in the boardroom, or at the negotiating table, persuasion is part of that art. Understanding how others communicate – and how they perceive and retain information – helps all lawyers message effectively and improve the legal profession as a whole.

In this CLE program, we will hear from skilled practitioners who will discuss the different types of communication they use and will share tips and best practices for conveying information to clients, opposing counsel, and the courts. 

Additionally, the panel will feature executive coach Stephanie Silverman, who will explain the science behind different communication styles and provide customized tools and techniques for enabling effective communication. Stephanie will discuss the characteristics of the various styles and how those characteristics may evolve under stress, and she will share tips for working successfully with those of differing styles, so as to assist all lawyers in furthering their own legal practices.

We hope you will be able to join us for this informative event.
