Jackson Lees Group hosts Learnfest




Jackson Lees Group hosts Learnfest

Award-winning North West law firm, Jackson Lees Group, has hosted a week-long festival of learning focused on sharing knowledge, insights, and experiences with its entire team across a broad range of topics.

The Group, which was celebrated as one of the London Stock Exchange Group’s ‘1,000 Companies to Inspire Britain’ earlier this year, hosted the week as part of its internal training academy. The week involved a vibrant series of seminars, talks and workshops across its offices.

The festival covered topics including emotional resilience, financial wellness, virtual reality and public relations, with guest speakers from a variety of different sectors taking part in talks and workshops. Guests during the week included Chanua Health, a research, technology, data and design firm focused on solving organisational challenges and Love, Jasmine, a support organisation for families dealing with the loss of a child. Elkan Abrahamson, a Director of the Group and renowned Solicitor, also held a talk on ‘What Hillsborough Taught Us’. Despite the variety of topics covered, the workshops all addressed the Group’s core value of Making a Positive Difference (#MAPD) to their people, clients and communities alike.

Gemma Ellison, Director and Head of Culture and Engagement, runs the Group’s Training Academy and led LearnFest.

She said: “Learnfest was a festival of learning. We held it to celebrate the first anniversary of our Training Academy and the learning culture that we are creating here at the Jackson Lees Group. Creating an environment which encourages curiosity and lifelong learning will help to support each of us and our business to be the best we can be. The engagement from our people in all of the sessions was amazing; there was a buzz around our offices last week and the energy was infectious. It’s important that we all remember that our learning has no limits and we can all benefit from sharing the skills and experiences we have in our amazing business.”

“I also want to thank the guest speakers who spent time sharing their knowledge with us. It was a very enlightening week and was the perfect way to celebrate our Academy’s first birthday!”

Joanna Kingston-Davies, Group Chief Operating Officer, said: “LearnFest was an incredible way to celebrate and encourage in-house learning.  The sessions held over the past week have positively benefitted every single person who attended and gave us all a wonderful opportunity to gain insights from a really wide variety of speakers. Our aim is to make a positive difference to our people and to develop the whole, well-rounded individual.  The diversity of events throughout the week absolutely promoted that with thought-provoking and insightful speakers and facilitators.”

“A huge thank you to the businesses and organisations which helped to make Learnfest a great success. The pride we feel from seeing our business grow and develop, and the results that our people achieve, make events like these even more worthwhile. We should never stop learning!”

Broudie Jackson Canter and Jackson Lees are part of the award-winning Jackson Lees Group. The group provides a full-service legal solution to personal and commercial clients and has over 280 employees across six offices in Merseyside and Manchester.
