Building Client Relationships and Tour the Amazon Spheres
Presented by Chiefs in Intellectual Property-Advancing Women
About the Event
Whether you are an in-house attorney, a member of a law firm, or a business person, relationships are critical to your success. Yet few organizations talk about and even fewer train employees on how to develop and deepen relationships. A groundbreaking study by Patricia Gillette, a leading expert on gender diversity and equality, identifies the kinds of personal characteristics that make people successful at building relationships that lead to stronger business connections and ties. In this interactive discussion led by Ms. Gillette and a panel of in-house counsel and successful business generators from local area law firms, we will explore each of the characteristics and how they manifest in our daily encounters with clients. Enjoy an exclusive tour of Amazon's Spheres followed by Ms. Gillette's presentation and reception.
Pat Gillette is one of the country’s leading experts and most sought-after speakers on gender diversity and equality. Rated as a top employment litigator and trial lawyer by Chambers and other organizations for 40 years and as a leader and rainmaker in her firms, Ms. Gillette decided to resign from her firm to pursue her passion for empowering women through keynote speaking and writing. She was also invited to join JAMS in San Francisco. Ms. Gillette is the 2018 recipient of the ABA Margaret Brent Award, the highest honor given to women lawyers for their professional achievements and for advancing the interest of women lawyers. She has also received many other awards for her work toward gender equality. Ms. Gillette’s newest book, “Rainmakers: Born or Bred” is filled with practical tactics and strategies that can be easily implemented to enhance business development skills and expand books of business. In the book, Ms. Gillette highlights the nationally acclaimed Rainmaker Study and includes helpful tips from rainmakers and clients across the country.
