Intapp Connect Virtual Summit
Operations & Finance Session
On-Demand Webinar – Recorded May 14, 2020
Profitable delivery in the face of uncertainty
In the face of challenging economic times, firms have historically adapted using alternative business practices not just to meet near-term client needs but also to fundamentally reinvent the way they work. Today, finance and operations professionals enjoy increased access to data and more sophisticated technology than ever before, which enables them to drive firmwide transformations for long-term profitable delivery.
Join Chris Kraft, General Manager of Operations and Finance at Intapp, and Toby Brown, Chief Practice Management Officer at Perkins Coie, to learn how, in challenging times like these, a truly connected firm can enhance outcomes:
- Learning from this period of deep crisis to adapt and drive lasting, positive change
- Recognizing that prioritizing client needs doesn’t mean sacrificing profitability
- Advocating effectively for a change agenda across the entire firm.
