ALPMA Summit 2019
Melbourne Convention Centre | 4th-6th September 2019
We are just back from 3 fantastic days at the Australasian Legal Practice Management Association (ALPMA) Summit in Melbourne. This is an annual gathering of lawyers, practice managers, technology providers and other legal tech experts. We normally attend at exhibitors each year as it's a great opportunity to meet so many Australasian clients and partners - as well as create new connections.
The sessions were really inspiring this year. The theme was Roadmap to Transformation - something we are passionate about at Actionstep. Our software is built with firms of the future in mind - allowing lawyers to work from anywhere, customise the system to their needs and eliminate the crazy amount of administration busy law firms face everyday - one step at a time! These concepts landed really well with people we spoke to.
There was a lot of focus on business development and culture, which balanced well with the discussions on technology driven innovation on the exhibit floor to give a very rounded overall sense of how firms can go through positive transformation. It was excellent to hear face to face stories about what law firms are doing to adapt to changing business and legal practices - technology is a big part of that.
We were deeply moved and inspired by the story of Rabia Siddique, who taught us about bravery - both in harrowing wartime situations as well as in how we can all challenge the status quo when we see it's required and the importance of honesty and transparency as leaders as we push for change.
We have put together a light overview of our key takeaways to keep our learnings top of mind between now and next year!
