Legal Under Lockdown – with Beejal Patel, Diageo
Tuesday 21st July
Beejal Patel, Diageo
Legal Under Lockdown is a series of live Q&A with in-house legal leaders.
Despite the challenges we face in the current environment, legal operations and management needs to continue running smoothly. In each 30 minute live session, a different in-house legal professional will be interviewed via video conference, from their home office, about how they are addressing these issues and delivering value.
As Legal Systems Administrator at Diageo, Beejal Patel oversees multiple legal technologies that are enabling Diageo’s global legal team to function effectively without needing to be in the office. Beejal will share what these are, as well as giving her experiences of remote working, how it has impacted her day-to-day working and personal life, and how legal leaders can support their teams.
As an attendee you will not be on camera, but can submit questions through the chat. There’s no cost to attend, but you must pre-register.
