Rick Seivewright – Expert speaker at The Legal IT Conference 2021
Pioneer Search’s Senior Consultant for IT Change and Transformation had the privilege of being asked to present at the Alternative Events’ “The Legal IT Conference 2021.
Hosted at the Crown Plaza Hotel, Marlow – this 2-day event brought together leading industry experts across the legal sector to network, engage and share their expertise.
Presenting “How do IT Directors propel themselves upwards to the Board”, Rick took to the stage alongside Derek Southall of Hyperscale Group to provide insight into the current job market, remote and agile working and most crucially how can the IT Director propel themselves upwards, with the main takeaway being to strive to be seen as a critical ‘business partner’ rather than a ‘service provider’.
One common theme that was clear from all the delegates and guests Rick spoke to throughout the event was the need to transform, digitalise and win over the hearts and minds of the Partners to properly invest in IT.
Other guest speakers and topics debated throughout the event included:
- Opening day chaired by James Temple of Seddons, followed by one of the most engaging speeches you could wish for from the superb Dr Helena Boschi - covering the psychological and cognitive impact of the pandemic on those in and out of work.
- Carol Skinner - Head of IT at Lewis Silkin and Anthony Stables of Forsters proving insight into how the pandemic affected their roles in IT.
- Dorigen Sykes - Managing Director ITrain Legal presenting how businesses can prepare for the near future and upskill their workforce.
- Martyn Wells - Owner of Wells Technology Services tying off the event with a Q&A covering some fascinating discussion points around the world of work now we’re back to normal.
