Driving Strategic Transformation: Leveraging the Unique Perch of the Chief Legal Officer

Today’s CLO playbook no longer solely focuses on legal. Recognized as both a legal advisor, and a strategic business partner with extensive legal knowledge, organizations have repositioned CLOs to lead legal and other corporate business units, thereby strengthening the CLO's influence across the organization. Armed with a unique perspective and a valuable array of skills, CLOs ensure that their companies tackle everything from the challenges posed by AI to the thorny issues of workplace harassment to finding even more ways to do more with less. Join the highest-ranking legal officers from around the world in a 2.5 day intimate peer-to-peer global benchmarking programme to share what works, what doesn't, and what's coming next.

Let's talk! Book a consultation with Pamela Entsminger, Specialist, Executive Education.
