Mourant Ozannes’ ‘ADVANCE Mini-MBA’ programme has been shortlisted for ‘Best Programme for Leadership Development’ at the 2017 Managing Partners’ Forum (MPF) awards.
The ‘ADVANCE Mini-MBA’ programme is a week-long intensive study event for Counsel who have been identified as possible future Partners at Mourant Ozannes. The delegates attend from every office location to receive formal teaching and collaborate in strategic problem solving workshops. They are supported by expert speakers and facilitators from the UK, USA and Australia, who collaborate with senior business leaders and Partners from Mourant Ozannes to design and deliver sessions on leadership, business development, strategy, finance, technological innovation and knowledge management.
Mourant Ozannes Global Head of Knowledge, Catherine Cadman, said: “We are thrilled to be shortlisted for this award. Strategic law firm leadership is increasingly complex and our ‘ADVANCE Mini-MBA’ ensures delegates receive the range of knowledge, skills and behaviours needed to transition successfully to partnership at Mourant Ozannes, lead our business and develop high quality client services.”
Global Head of HR, Sarah Kelly, said: “Having highly engaged people working collaboratively to deliver unrivalled client experience is at the heart of what we do. One of the ways we achieve this is by providing our people at every level with the tools and opportunities to achieve their career ambitions with us.”
Now in its 15th year, the MPF Awards for Management Excellence aims to provide independent evidence for management teams on their contributions to their firms’ objectives.
The winners will be announced on Wednesday 8 March 2017 at an event held in London.
