A second year of Developing a Consultant Mindset

David Presswell was delighted to be invited back to speak at Peerpoint’s ‘Developing a Consultant Mindset’ evening for 50 of their newest associates.  This was a repeat of the same event in 2016.

Peerpoint was created in late 2013 by the international law firm, Allen & Overy, to provide an ‘on-demand’ legal consulting service to clients.  It has proved hugely successful and now counts almost 200 top flight lawyers on its panel, 40% of whom are Allen & Overy alumni.

The Consultant Mindset event was designed by David alongside Head of Consultant Management at Peerpoint, Lisa Mulley.  Its aim is to support new associates make the move from ‘employee’ to ‘free-lance’ consultant, with the shift in outlook and approach this requires.  Using his and Aretai’s experience assessing and coaching across many sectors, David themed the challenges under the four broad headings of Belonging, Control, Awareness, and Me Plc.

I am just at the beginning of my consulting journey and I am hugely grateful for all your advice and tips. (Participant)
