Andrew Grill

How can law firms get ready for the change brought about by an ever increasingly digital business environment?

Former IBM global managing partner Andrew Grill will take to the stage at this year’s Business Leadership Summit to explain how law firms can tackle the challenges posed by new operational models and, at the same time, make the most of available opportunities around investments and strategies.

His advice will build on his four-year experience at the technology giant, where he was behind sales of around $100m made with IBM clients. By overseeing internal consulting units, he also provided advice on digital transformation programs. 

Grill will also share knowledge coming out of his more recent consulting activity around digital projects for corporate and law firm clients, including Taylor Wessing.

Among the companies who turned to him for wisdom are Vodafone, Barclays, Nike, De Beers, Mars, Schroders Bank, Nestle, Wella, Euler Hermes, DHL, Technogym, LinkedIn and Bupa.

The challenges of embarking in transformation initiatives were at the heart of his CEO role at social influence platform Kred, as well as other six start-ups over one year.

In the past, Grill also ran Australian commercial property website PropertyLook, and held senior roles within Australian telecommunications companies Telstra and Optus.

Grill joins a list of over 30+ speakers making up this year’s speaker line-up at The Lawyer’s Business Leadership Summit on 25 September.
