We were represented at the Legal Innovation & Tech Fest by Kathy Colman (Knowledge & Learning Head), Monica Cooks (Knowledge Systems Manager), Celia Pienaar (Legal Project Manager - Legal Services Centre), and Megan Jackson (Legal Project Manager - Legal Services Centre).

Megan delivered a presentation on effective change management within law firms (available here) and participated in the interactive law firm panel, Insights from the front of the pack.

The Legal Innovation and Tech Fest was a great opportunity for those involved the legal services industry to get together and share thinking. We look forward to participating in this event again next year and hope to see you there.
