Welcome to the 2018 ACC Europe Annual Conference

Bienvenue to the ACC Europe Conference in Paris!

This year our flagship event will take place in one of the most beautiful cities in the world, the Ville Lumière.
Few cities on earth inspire the imagination like Paris. Building on that atmosphere, our programme plans to inspire you… how to develop leadership in these uncertain times.

The formula we have developed over the past two years does not only focus on the law – although that is one key aspect of it. Nor does it merely focus on the law of one jurisdiction. Our focus is holistic, multifaceted and has met with much success in the past. Based on your feedback, we will explore the conference topic through the three dynamic tracks of previous conferences:

  • Lead the Law
  • Lead the Business
  • Lead Yourself.

You will have the opportunity to explore how, as an in-house lawyer, you can take an increased leadership role for your own professional growth but also for the benefit of your organisation.

Approaching leadership via these three tracks allows you to not only keep abreast of the latest trends in the key legal topics relevant to an in-house lawyer today in Europe, but to ensure they are adapted to carrying out your role as a trusted business advisor to your business clients while at the same time developing the soft skills to ensure you get your message across effectively. These different aspects of leadership come together within an international context which provide a unique offering to the in-house community in Europe.

In addition to the plenary and panel sessions, networking opportunities with colleagues from around the world, coaching and mentoring, you will also be able to attend interactive workshop sessions. Facilitated by experts, these “Law Labs” will allow you to focus on an area of personal development, operations or the law in a small group of your peers.

Our signature conference dinner will take place at the Palais Brongniart, a centrepiece of Parisian architectural heritage built upon the orders of Napoleon that housed the Bourse de Paris (Paris stock exchange) for nearly one and a half centuries. The evening promises to be memorable and very special.

So, if you are interested in a mixture of networking and exploring how you can develop leadership in the uncertain times of the new economy, please check out our exciting programme and register as soon as possible.

We look forward to welcoming you to Paris!
