GC ENGAGE EUROPE - EXECUTIVE LEADERSHIP SUMMIT
GC Engage is an invitation only event from the team with the track record who understand what is takes to deliver real value to the real in house leaders.
GC Engage is by the industry for the industry.
We will engage with 70 leading General Counsel from across Europe and deliver real thought leadership which will address the core business challenges facing the in house community into the next decade.
During the 2 days industry experts and in-house leaders will share best practice through a series of high level keynotes and focused discussion groups.
What is Value? GCs Have More Choice Than Ever Before.
There has never been more choice in how legal services are procured, and with starting salaries for new lawyers in some firms pushing $180,000 and $340,000 for associates, the 'value' debate has never been more relevant. We will discuss how the most proactive GC's are adding tangible commercial value to their business. Also does private practice really understand what the GC definition of value is, or are corporations not communicating their requirements clearly enough?
Anti-Bribery & Corruption
An opportunity to dissect the core ABC challenges around fraud, sanctioned corruption, whistle blowing, 3rd party risk, and how technology and predictive analytics can be used to spot trends quickly to deliver a robust compliance programme.
Crisis Management: From Chaos to Clarity
We will examine the role the GC plays in preparing for, mitigating against and dealing with the inevitable crisis.
The industry is under the microscope with #MeToo, sexual harassment, equal pay and gender pay gap controversies. We will discuss the impact from an in house perspective.
Legal Technology & Innovation
Are the resources really available to deliver a successful and seamless implementation of technology? What can go wrong, why is it not the magic bullet?
The GC is the Most Powerful Person in the Organisation
We all accept that the role of the GC has changed and continues to evolve. The great GC has a deep knowledge of the law coupled with extensive business awareness - join discussions that understand this evolving role and learn why the next crop of CEOs should be from the GC ranks.
Unique round-table interactive format
- Collaborating with high level peers to share your own expertise in an intimate private environment
- Learning alongside peers who share similar challenges and issues
- Networking with up to 70 senior industry decision makers on an invitation only basis
We will bring together up to 70 senior GCs from across Europe per event to attend a mixture of plenary sessions and interactive round-table discussion groups.
The key element is that the GCs qualify themselves into the round-table discussions which are most relevant to them. This format maximises interaction and allows intimate networking and knowledge sharing with all the attendees.

- Each group visits every topic table for a 40-minute discussion
