His commitment to both personal growth and the betterment of the legal realm remains unwavering.
Janet Day – Independent Consultant
Janet has worked in the broad sphere of legal IT virtually all her working life – even her MBA speciality was ‘Competitive Advantage in the Legal Profession’. After working in administration at A&O, Janet set up a specialist consultancy practice looking at technology services (in their widest sense) for legal firms. She joined BLP about 19 years ago – initially as a consultant but later as their IT Director with a wide range of responsibilities. She normally says ‘if it plugs into an electric socket and does not make coffee it belongs to me!’ She was responsible for technology in its broadest sense, including ecommerce activities, knowledge management services and the building and infrastructure.
