Small Practice Conference enjoys big success


Short, sharp presentations proved a hit at the recent LIV Small Practice Conference.

LIV Professional Development general manager Julie McCormack said the afternoon session included 20-minute presentations on four key practice areas.

“These short updates were very successful. People appreciated getting the updates in such a concentrated way,” she said.

The updates were from LIV accredited specialist Alison Umbers on litigation; LIV accredited specialist Maria Barbayannis on family law; tax specialist Bernard Marks on tax (wills and estates); and LIV accredited specialist Erskine Rodan on immigration law.

Ms McCormack said about165 registrants and sponsors attended, and the feedback from everyone was positive.

“A measure of a good conference is that from the start to the end of the day we kept 90 percent of participants, which is a very good ratio.”

The conference was opened by LIV president Tony Burke and the keynote address on “Creating and building capital value in your practice” was given by Pitcher Partners Consulting representative Dr Richard Shrapnel.

The LIV Small Practice Kit– “Supporting Small Practice –across all dimensions” – was also launched at the conference.

The kit is divided into three areas: practice management, professional and personal. “Practice management” includes all HR related services, information on marketing, IT, commercial benefits and any professional development related to business management.

“Professional” focuses on advocacy and practice types of services, including information on LIV Sections, continuing professional development and information resources.

“Personal” includes information on social networking events, health and wellbeing and relevant social issues.
