Maintaining engagement and interest during a two-day course is not easy, but I found Antony’s Legal Process Improvement course to be both engaging and insightful.
Having just completed the LPIP course with Antony, I immediately put what I’ve learnt into action with my work. Learning new tools and ways of working is crucial in my view and I’ve loved using the new software Antony introduced us to in my day to day work. Clear explanations, slides and practical exercises – combined with delegates’ interaction – kept our interest levels high over the full two days of the LPIP course.
I feel confidently able to lead Legal Projects and am armed with a great set of tools and precedents.
Antony is very knowledgeable and skilled – I recommend this course to everyone wishing to strengthen their skill base and be part of the future of legal service delivery.
The three-day course with Antony was very enjoyable and rich in content. I can recommend it to any lawyer who wants to learn more about legal project management. I particularly appreciated the fact that it was held in a small group and that, despite the condensed program, there was enough time for questions and exchange.
This course is worth 2-3 days of your time. Whether you are new to legal project management, have a rough idea of what LPM is or are a veteran in the field, you will find new perspectives and angles to help with your understanding. I enjoyed the course and gained great perspective on what would be expected from me as a Legal Project Manager.”
The three-day course provides a comprehensive insight into legal project management and how legal project management techniques can be implemented effectively in practice. Antony is very knowledgeable and so the course is highly informative. The course is also very engaging as everyone is encouraged to think about how they would apply legal project management techniques to the case study provided and discuss with one another. I would highly recommend the course to all those interested in legal project management.
I really enjoyed the course and engaging with the other candidates on it. Very informative, it was extremely valuable learning how best to apply project management best practice to an LPM specific role. I was slightly concerned about taking a course via Zoom but I needn’t have been, this method of training delivery worked very well. The use of breakout rooms, face-to-face chats and candidate exercises added variety and facilitated the learning experience to good effect. In addition, there was lots of practical advice, e-handouts and useful references for further reading.
The course provides great insight into legal project management and its implementation. Antony is very knowledgeable and excellent at conveying the key concepts of legal project management.
I just wanted to say a huge “thank you” for last week’s course. The three days achieved exactly what I was looking for – to pull together various bits of disparate knowledge and thinking, and to reassemble them into something more structured and coherent.
I will be putting the takeaways into action immediately, and the elements of Lean and Agile which we talked about will provide a really useful means of starting to introduce project management techniques into the legal team at AIB.
What I wasn’t necessarily expecting was to spend the three days with such an interesting and engaged group of people; and to learn so much from them. I hope the rest of the team didn’t find the interventions from “in house corner” too disruptive!”
I have long been convinced that applying the principles of project management (LPM) to my cases would help my clients and firm.
After conducting research it seemed that Antony was probably one of the best LPM trainers on the market, so I signed up for his 3 day course.
The course proved to be very well designed and highly informative. It covered an incredible number of topics on how to best manage a legal project. The practical nature of the course was highlighted with insights by former course Alumni’s who returned to explain how they have applied the course in their practice.
Antony is a fantastic trainer, highly knowledgeable, very intelligent and with a great sense of humour which made the training very pleasant.
As a project manager from outside the legal industry this course was a great introduction to project management in law. Really good insights into the legal environment and legal I.T.
“The Association of Cost Lawyers encourages its members to offer a wide range of skills and services which truly add value to the work of their solicitor clients. With this in mind we engaged Antony to deliver a series of seminars about Legal Project Management. Feedback from members who attended was overwhelmingly positive about both the content and presenter. We are looking forward to working with Antony again sometime in the future. I warmly recommend his seminars for practitioners of all kinds who want to learn about the importance of project management skills”.
“Antony’s course is really well run and delivered. A good mix of teaching styles: lecturing and interactive workshops / discussion points. Antony clearly knows his stuff and is also up to date, which you don’t always see. Also a great opportunity to meet fellow professionals and exchange ideas and experiences.”
“Excellent interactive course with lots of practical examples and tips that can be implemented immediately”.
“An excellent training program for anyone who wants to learn about legal project management”.
“Thought provoking and interesting. I look forward to putting it into practice and seeing the inevitable changes within the industry”.
“It has been a very useful session as it’s brought together the informal practices and processes performed in the workplace along with the more formal project management techniques. I would definitely recommend the course for a detailed overview of legal project management and for upskilling”.
“Antony’s training is very well prepared and structured (students receive workshop material in advance). His course provides essential knowledge of project management for lawyers and this is reinforced by facilitated workshops, where students can practice newly learned project management skills. Many items covered during the course can be implemented back at the office immediately. Antony is a smart and open-minded coach who clearly enjoys interaction with his students and I would be very happy to work with him again.”
“Excellent delivery of an innovative course. Antony showed flexibility and responsiveness to student needs. The workshops and exercises helped better understanding of the project management concepts presented”.
“Antony is knowledgeable and his passion for the topic was evident. The course itself has great content with lots of information, and I loved the book of templates”.
“I thought the course was really good – I’ve covered some areas before, but it was great to have those areas refreshed and there was plenty that was new. Though 3 days is a long time, I felt I benefited from the time away from the office, giving me time and space to reflect on how we might move forward in this important area.”
“One of our senior solicitor’s contacted Antony after reading some of his blog posts. Antony’s experience, advice and project management skills have been invaluable in helping us identify and install a new practice management system. Antony is a pleasure to work with and he has been a real asset to our business as we invest in further technology for the future benefit of our practice.”
“I worked with Antony for 8 years, at Axxia & LexisNexis, he is very knowledgeable and has a strong understanding of both the legal process and IT systems. This enables him to produce very compelling solutions helping law firms to get real advantage and ROI.”
“I invited Antony to deliver a half-day session about legal project management and process improvement to the senior management team and process improvement group at Birkett Long. The session was informative, interesting and very relevant. We are now working on developing further some of the ideas Antony presented to us. If you want to learn about the opportunities and challenges associated with implementing legal project management and legal process improvement, I’d recommend a half day session with Antony as an excellent starting point.”
“Antony is an enthusiastic colleague with good analytical skills and a talent for pulling together multiple sources of information. His background as a practising lawyer and within the legal IT/publishing industry means he brings a lot of experience to the table. Antony is particularly good at looking at market and product ideas which lie slightly outside of business as usual – he is a thorough researcher and passionate advocate of his ideas and proposals.”
“I worked for Antony as a software developer in a development team including former solicitors. Introducing workflow systems into numerous departments and offices throughout the firm presented challenges on a number of fronts. Antony did an excellent job of managing these projects, in particular building strong relationships with senior stakeholders in the partnership and working with them to implement the business and organisational changes the new systems introduced”.
