The theme this year is Making it Work and we want to focus on making your firm work for you and maximising what you have got!

We are delighted to have Matt Fleetwood Chief Executive at Beyond as our headline speaker.  

Having been a trainee at boutique legal practice Heatons  Matt worked his way up through the business to become Managing Partner of Heatons.  After running the firm for several years, Matt sold the business to Fieldfisher where he spent over three years managing the growth of the Fieldfisher Manchester Office.

Matt together with former Fieldfisher partner Jim Truscott, established Beyond Corporate as a professional service brand, to invest in complementary professional services businesses with legal services at its core.

Matt will be taking us through his journey of ‘making it work’ at very different firms and starting all over again with his new venture Beyond Corporate.
