Source Conference

The Symphony Legal annual conference.  Your source of inspiration, of ideas, of innovation.


We have designed what we hope you will agree is not your typical law firm conference.  Below is a final version of the agenda to whet your appetite for what is going to be a fantastic conference.


After a full day of learning, the fun will begin with our Annual Awards Dinner; a chance to relax, let your hair down and network with colleagues. Last year's dinner was a night to remember and we aim to make this year's equally as memorable with entertainment from Celia Delaney. 


Nominations for awards are now open and will close on Tuesday 27 August 2019 at noon. Winners will be announced at the awards dinner on the 12 September. 



And then for those who still want more, we will reconvene the next day for further learning and depart before lunch.


Booking is now open via the Eventbrite link, but if you wish to be invoiced a place, please email

The moments of truth that determine your firm's future success 

Paul Shrimpling​

Knowing the moments that ultimately decide your success, your earnings, your enjoyment even, means you can work on improving your skills and performance.  But which moments matter the most? From Paul’s session you’ll be able to identify the moments that matter most. You’ll also discover what you do to make these moments of truth pay off for you and your firm.  



Inter-Generational Harmony & Inclusivity in the Workplace

Henry Rose Lee

With up to five generations in today’s organisations, some employees feel they don’t understand each other’s working practices or attitudes.
