How to use events for business development - Jonathan Lea Network

How to use events for business development

The other week I was asked by my Twitter pal (we also caught up for a few beers in Madrid once) Guillermo Perez to write a post in the Spanish blog Inkietos outlining my ideas about using events for business development.

The blog is aimed at the legal market, but the article should be relevant for most businesses, particularly professional services firms.  Many of the points made come from lessons I’ve learned and ideas developed while organising both the Seed Academy and Pivotal Tribes meetup groups, as well as from attending a lot of great events organised by others, especially in London’s innovative and sociable ‘Tech City’ startup community.

About Jonathan Lea

Jonathan is a specialist business law solicitor who has been practising for over 18 years, starting at the top international City firms before then spending some time at a couple of smaller practices. In 2013 he started working on a self-employed basis as a consultant solicitor, while in 2019 The Jonathan Lea Network became a SRA regulated law firm itself after Jonathan got tired of spending all day referring clients and work to other law firms.

The Jonathan Lea Network is now a full service firm of solicitors that employs senior and junior solicitors, trainee solicitors, paralegals and administration staff who all work from a modern open plan office in Haywards Heath. This close-knit retained team is enhanced by a trusted network of specialist consultant solicitors who work remotely and, where relevant, combine seamlessly with the central team.
