UPCOMING EVENTS

Negotiations 101

Melbourne / Free Event

Whether in business or social situations, negotiation is a key part of everyday life.

Maybe you’re asking for a raise, getting buy-in for a new idea or project, closing a deal or navigating a conflict… no matter the situation, you’re probably using some form of negotiation, persuasion or influence.  When it comes to business situations, many people shy away from negotiating and struggle to ask for what they want. But as a founder, your ability to take a stance and clearly articulate your position could be the difference between achieving a successful or an unsuccessful outcome.  

If want to learn how to hone your negotiation skills, but have no idea where to start — this workshop is for you. 

Join us on Tuesday 17 April 6:00-8:00pm at  The Henley Club. Registration essential, limited seats available!

Top 5 Legal Tips for Entrepreneurs
Friday 12th May, 2017

BRISBANE / FREE EVENT

Gravity — Level 6, 140 Creek Street, Brisbane City, QLD 4000

Working closely with some of Australia’s leading entrepreneurs and founders, Law Squared will be conducting a lunch time seminar on the Top 5 Legal Tips for Entrepreneurs at Gravity in Brisbane. As entrepreneurs, it is important to remember the legal implications of running a business and making sure you are protected for the long-haul. Unfortunately, entrepreneurs consider their legal and accounting as an afterthought and, often, would rather have a focus on sales and marketing. Your business’ legal position could be the difference between success and failure. According to start up accelerator Blue Chilli, 1 in 20 Australian start-ups are a success. That means 95% fail. Of those that succeed, 60% fail within the first 3 years.

To assist your business in following the path to success, this lunchtime seminar will cover the following topics:

— Business Plans & Structures
— Becoming Employee Ready
— Importance of Contracts and Agreements
— Brand Protection/IP; and
— Insurance

Light lunch will be provided.
