LSSO's RainDance Conference
LSSO's annual RainDance Conference is the key resource of the organization. The two-day conference is filled with high-level interactive sessions, roundtables and lively discussions with industry thought leaders.
RainDance offers less of the theory and more of the practical, effective sales and service strategies for attendees to bring back to their firm and implement immediately. With an intimate setting, you can expect open and honest dialogue among the attendees about the challenges they face in meeting the demands of the increasingly competitive and evolving industry.
RainDance is for firm leaders who have significant responsibilities for client retention, client growth, new business development, client service, and process improvement strategies to shape the future of their firms. It is recognized and known for attracting the highest caliber of attendees who are often regarded as the thought leaders in their firms and those who help shape the industry.
Meet the 2020 Co-Chairs
Now in its 17th year, the RainDance Conference has earned a reputation as a must attend event for senior level law firm sales and business development professionals. With their big firm and smaller firm perspectives, this year's co-chairs are planning dynamic sessions with practical takeaways for everyone.
