The Making of a Law Firm Series:

Time Management for a Better Work-Life Balance

Join this free session to gain tips on managing your calendar and workload to reduce stress and ensure a better work-life balance for everyone at your firm.

Recording available on-demand.

When it comes to running your own law firm and serving clients, it can feel like the work is never done. For the sake of your wellbeing, though, and that of every member of your team, finding the right time management solutions to ensure a healthy work-life balance is essential.

That’s why, for the tenth episode of The Making of a Law Firm Series, Clio’s UK Community Manager, Geraldine O’Reilly, will be joined by three of our law firm leaders, Natalie Foster, Founder at Foster Clay Law, Elena Manukyan, Partner at The Injury Solicitor, and Alistair Wells, Founder and Director at Tend Legal. We will also be joined by a special guest, Tania Cuturi, Founder & ACC Executive Coach NCP.

In this free online session, our panel will talk about the important points of how to manage your time and schedule for an optimal work-life balance, including:

  • Learnings from the leaders on when and how to ask for help.
  • Tips on shutting off and creating boundaries between work and personal time.
  • Managing your workload to reduce unnecessary stress.

Our leaders will discuss their own experiences of juggling busy schedules and organising their calendars as new law firm owners and why it is so important.

Join us for this free event to ask your questions and offer your own perspective. Attendees will be encouraged to participate in the discussion and to contribute and will be free to ask questions of all our panellists via Zoom chat.

Session duration: 60 minutes
