Ladies and gentlemen, it’s that time of year again…
The gunnercookeSymposium is returning to Oxford on 11-12 September 2019 – and preparations are well under way to make it our greatest event yet! We’re inviting all our partners to join us for two action-packed days brimming with keynote speakers, workshops and insightful discussions to celebrate our 9th birthday.
theme for this year’s event is ‘Wonderful
Lives’, exploring our mission to support the health, wellbeing
and lifestyle of every person working within the gunnercooke
When you join gunnercooke you make a brave decision to back yourself. You leave behind being told what to do, when to be in the office at the beginning of the day, when to leave at the end of the day, how many holidays to take, how many hours of work to do each year, when to retire. You leave behind being told to attend meetings and even the amount of the firm’s business development or pro bono work to undertake and you leave behind having your remuneration being determined by others, by committees. By leaving you have chosen to design your own life. We have one life. We don’t know the meaning of life but the purpose of life is to be happy. You no longer have to do things the way you did before. And we want you to make the most of your new found time and freedom. We want to help you to look at things differently as you design the life that you want. We want you and your family to enjoy your new life – every day. And that is what this years’ celebration is all about.
The snowball effect
Each year we have the pleasure of welcoming more and more lawyers and operating partners to share in the Symposium festivities. A bigger headcount is not only a sign of our growth as a business, it’s a testament to the culture we’ve been cultivating over the past decade.
many senior lawyers, and now management consultants, we speak to, have become
disillusioned with the confines of traditional firms. It’s no surprise really;
the archaic structure of the legal industry in particular, is simply not fit
for purpose in today’s modern age. But as yet they see no burning platform as
they continue to focus on profits per partner and work their young lawyers
harder and harder to achieve those profits, unless you believe that morality
and integrity and quality of a person’s life is a burning platform, and
unless you believe that they don’t care enough about their people – about the
whole person- and they care even less about their families.
grow our professional services firm, we recognise that yes, we want to go from
‘ good to great’ ( the theme of last year’s symposium) – good isn’t good enough
for gunnercooke and the drive to be greatwill be relentless –
but most of all, the very most of all, we want to nurture wonderful lives
We aim to nudge and to help create
wonderful lives for every gunnercooke person.
Watch this space!
