New content! A survey! Our new project! Events!

Before we get into our latest video content and events listings, an update.

As some of you may know, we are working on a very exciting project which we are aiming to launch in the autumn. We are working hard behind the scenes to produce a plethora of new content which will form a new premium subscription video service alongside our free-to-watch offerings. The premium subscription aims to fulfil the learning & development needs of our in-house community (while having a bit of fun as well). We’ll have a special focus on the experiences of in-house teams, but a host of other stuff besides.

In order to produce content that you really value and need, we have been working closely with in-housers already to ensure the content is spot on…but we need as many views as possible! As a Crafty fan (you surely must be, to be on this list), please complete this short survey - your views really, really matter to us!

Videos

Our top picks of our recent content.

  • Chris Fox, Chief Legal Officer at Kambi, gives us an insight into his team, explaining how they’ve used tech (and even designed their own!) to make a bigger impact and why culture plays an important role in getting the most out of the team. (< 9 mins).

  • Did you see our video going Behind the Scenes at DLA Piper’s WIN event? I keep hearing in-housers tell me that WIN is one of the rare genuinely really valuable events programmes for in-house, so I was keen to check it out. We posed the question: is “legal ops” just a buzzword or a bare necessity? More about WIN here (https://www.dlapiperwin.com/). (4 mins).

  • Building relationships, keeping things simple and being creative - we talked to Bhavisha Mistry, General Counsel at Mawdsleys, about her top tips for being an in-house lawyer. (< 4 mins).
