Practice Management Excellence
Industry leading training & personal development solutions for Barristers’ Chambers
The objectives of the programmes are to identify the key skills required for excellent practice development at various levels of a Clerks’ or Members’ career.
Our practice management training programme is where strategic thinking, innovation and cost effectiveness comes together to give you a bespoke solution for developing modern practice managers.
Our one-to-one practice development coaching programme is designed to motivate and encourage Members of the Bar. We can help alleviate the stress and worry that naturally occurs whilst being self-employed, and building your own practice. We help facilitate change and give you the confidence to cope and succeed.
There are plenty of good reasons to invest in training for chambers’ staff. But many feel that it’s expensive and some chambers’ management do not see the value in staff development. We have built a tool for you, to help you calculate the return you can give to your members. Please take a look, put in YOUR NUMBERS, and see what return you can give your chambers.
