The Managing Partner Program is for groups of Managing Partners who wish to explore issues of common interest and to review and develop their personal leadership style and impact. The content is designed to avoid any need to disclose confidential information.

Designed by lawyers for law firms and in-house legal departments, this is an interactive online group course of five sessions of up to 1.75 hours each week and one optional 1:1 60-minute coaching session within one month after session 7.


  • Today’s Managing Partners are required to be professional by their regulator both in their chosen disciplines and in a range of people and commercial skills that they may not have foreseen as students or trainees
  • Fulfill leadership, project management, and business development roles that require skills and mindsets different from, and complementary to, your technical abilities
  • Determine and use the skills to differentiate your Firm in the market place
  • Learn how to gain a significant competitive advantage over your competitors


This online program is highly flexible and will be created to match your own pace and working style. This course allows you to participate without the need for travel. It uses the latest online technology. Full instructions will be given to facilitate easy access. You will receive PowerPoint slides and a recording of each session. Each session is available to download for one month after the original session. Once downloaded, however, you can keep and review the content, at your leisure, as often as you like.


This program is led by Niall Foster, a highly experienced professional skills trainer, well versed in the ways of online group work. At each session, Niall will be joined by contributors who will add their perspectives and experience.
