Future Legal Leaders - Information Alchemy


This course explores key, practical ways to deliver legal content or information with impact, in a way that is both engaging and empathetic. It is not just about becoming a better presenter; you will learn how to build a positive communication mindset.

Throughout the workshop, Steve will teach you how to prepare under time-pressure, in order to deliver technical information to others (who might not be technical!) and you will examine the role that narrative plays in successfully delivering of technical information to others. You will also explore the importance of presenting well, learn how to manage your negative ‘shadow voice’ and how to develop the right mindset when presenting.

Your Trainer - Steve Weiner, TMD International

During his time as a practising litigation solicitor in the City of London, Steve began doing stand-up and sketch comedy open spots around the country as a hobby. After winning a prestigious national ‘new act’ competition, Steve found himself signed and touring with the largest comedy agency in the UK and presenting and acting both on radio and TV. Giving up private practice, Steve balanced his performance career (around 1500 live shows) with a career delivering skills development and coaching for lawyers and those working with lawyers in firms – gigging at night and training/coaching/role-playing during the day. Eventually focusing on the facilitating and coaching full-time, Steve’s passion for learning and development became his sole focus. Along the way Steve worked as an L&D consultant for numerous global law firms and then as Head of L&D for a UK top 100 firm in Mayfair, London, before moving into consultancy.
