The Organisation

The firm is an international law firm advising on complex transactions and disputes through local knowledge and an integrated international network. With a strong sector focus, combining technical excellence with deep industry knowledge across energy, transport and real estate. Their values rest on developing deep and long-lasting relationships externally and internally through respect, sharing, communication and integrity.


As part of a trainee induction programme, 10Eighty were asked to design and deliver a short networking skills workshop to 18 new trainee solicitors. The induction programme included the trainees attending a professional skills course, as well as talks and seminars to help them settle into the firm.

The Brief

The HR department had received feedback from previous trainees that, although they were expected to network and business develop early on in their roles, this was something trainees did not feel they had the confidence or skills to do effectively. There appeared to be some reticence in initiating contact with individuals they did not know well and a tendency to hide behind social media and email, rather than connecting with individuals on a face to face basis.
