Experts Deliver Master Class on Managing Talent

The crucial issue of senior talent retention will be addressed by two world-class talent management experts during a Law Council seminar in Sydney in August.

Organised by the Law Council's Legal Practice Section, the World Masters of Law Firm Management will be held on 19 August at the Four Seasons Hotel.

Sydney-based management consultant John Colvin and Deloitte's Nicky Wakefield headline the seminar and will provide key insights into attracting and retaining talent at the top level.

John Colvin is Executive Chairman of Johns Executive Search, former Partner of Heidrick & Struggles and former managing partner/CEO of Blake Dawson. He specialises in board, CEO and professional services work.

Nicky Wakefield is the lead Partner for the NSW Human Capital Consulting Practice at Deloitte. For more than 15 years she has worked in the public and private sectors and professional services providing management consulting and advisory support on people and change.

Following the keynote presentations, an expert panel including Daljit Singh (Director of Talent Management, Baker & McKenzie, Sydney) will come together to discuss the trends and solutions, and delegates will have the opportunity to ask questions.

"Retaining senior talent is one of the keys to remaining competitive in today's market and it is a vital issue for law firms everywhere," Law Council President Glenn Ferguson said.

"Hiring talented people is one thing retaining them is another. Understanding the motivation to stay or go is critical for firms looking to retain talent and grow their businesses," he said.

"The Law Council's World Masters seminars have earned a reputation for showcasing some of the globe's most sought after law firm leaders and management specialists and this year's event will be no exception," Mr Ferguson said.
