Marcus will cover key themes including:

• The big commercial awareness themes that will set the agenda for the year ahead
• What BCLP’s clients are focusing on at the beginning of 2023
• The way in which hot themes of 2022, such as ESG and inflation, will continue to evolve
• How students need to be thinking about current affairs as they apply for training contracts

Marcus will also look back on his career journey, and reflect on what he has learned so far.

The talk will be followed by a Q&A between Marcus and BARBRI’s senior manager in the business and account management team, Caroline Perriam to ensure full understanding of the topic. There will then be virtual networking with BARBRI’s SQE team.
