“Agenda represented key issues front of mind for my organization” – comment from GC in evaluation, spring Europe conference

Qualifying global corporate legal and compliance leaders may participate in one conference as a trial, and then may choose to join with full member benefits.

At the conference, participants exchange practical experience and insights off-the-record and hear from prominent leaders and subject-matter experts.  It’s an opportunity to gain concrete information, pragmatic ideas, insights and tools from high-quality professionals in similar roles.

“There is very interactive participation and a real exchange of valuable info. I had cautious high hopes which were met and exceeded.” – regional General Counsel, GCLC Member
