Over the weekend of Friday 8 and Saturday 9 November 2019, I gathered together with many lawyers from across Australia and New Zealand for The Club Retreat. Over the past 3 years, this two day conference at Kingscliff has grown from 25 colleagues sitting around a table to over 100 professionals, both in law and out, in a huge colourful conference hall.
I am deeply proud of this event and its ability to bring lawyers together from all practice areas and types of firms to genuinely spend two days laughing, crying and learning from some of the most powerful and talented speakers in this country – it’s something I have not experienced anywhere else in my career!
Why does all that matter? Well because the practice of law, the profession that I am so privileged to be a part of, comes with so many challenges – a culture of overwork, competition and perfectionism that continue to result in unnecessarily high rates of burn out and psychological ill-health.
Thanks to my amazing blogging team in Kiarah Grace Kelly and Hannah Trotter, you can access all the content from the two days in blog form!!
