“What a great resource, wish I'd had it when I started in house!”

Nick Galloway, Regional Counsel, PPG

“It identified and articulated the challenges in house teams face in simple and easy to understand ways. It suggested useful and simple tools to address the issues. I thought it was great and really useful.”

Clementine Smith, GC, Powershop

“I thought the video quality and presentation was excellent and really sophisticated and I also really liked the two-sided perspectives, being both that of the internal business client and the inhouse legal team. This is really well personalised and also very slick in the presentation. I think it will have a lot of take up amongst the inhouse community.”

“A fantastic resource full of practical tips. Excellent quality of recording and layout/format. Very easy to navigate the platform. Love the cheat sheet! Pace of the modules and speaking is great.
