Other Stuff That’s 20 Years Old This Year

In case you missed it, Savvy Training & Consulting is 20 years old this year! I wrote a history of the company last week (it’s riveting).

This year, Savvy celebrates its 20th anniversary and I’ve been reflecting on the company’s history, which closely mirrors the most exciting technological innovations of our age. And, as tech has advanced, we’

Automated On-Boarding: Bye-Bye Zombie Apocalypse, Hello Ready-to-Work Recruits!

Ohhhhhhh, lookee there! It’s a fresh new crop of attorneys joining the firm!

To the HR and IT teams responsible for their care and feeding, this line of recruits can start to feel like the Zombie Apocalypse!

How to Get the Most Out of ILTACON 2017

VISIT SAVVY: BOOTH 808 Who is getting excited about ILTACON 2017?! I am! I am! This is the 40th annual ILTACON and it’s being held August 13-17 at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas. If you’re already booked and planning to attend, make sure to visit Savvy at Booth 808. If you’re not already booked… what are you waiting for? This is literally the best place for legal professionals to network, beef up their skills, discover management and tech trends, hear from the industry’s top thinkers, and get cool swag! In my “prior life,” I served as COO of a mid-sized law firm; I remember how it can start to feel like you’re working in a vacuum if you don’t pop your head up out of the day-to-day sometimes. Att
