Reid Trautz, a former LexThink attendee, offers this take on LexThink Innovate:
Matt Homann has more good ideas than just about anyone else I know. And when it comes to legal "conferences" there is no one who does it better. I attended the first LexThink event in Chicago a few years ago, and still think it was one of the more rewarding learning experiences I have had as a lawyer. Several years later, I engaged Matt to consult on a legal conference I was co-organizing, to make it more interesting and vibrant for attendees. Once again, his ideas were a hit.
So I am pleased to learn that Matt has designed and organized LexThink Innovate, the latest in his LexThink events (I hate to call them "conferences" because is is so unlike other legal conferences). Billed as part "unconference", part retreat, LexThink is meant to engage and challenge all participants. It requires thought, participation, and deeper commitment to action than your typical CLE conference. Rest assured, this is not a marketing consultant selling you an expensive service; Matt is a former practicing lawyer who has devoted the last five years to rethinking how lawyers can come together to innovate their law firms.
Matt's latest innovation for LexThink Innovate? It is the first "Name Your Own Price" legal event. Yep, you pay the value of what you think you got out of it–after you attend! Guaranteed. In short, he's turning “you get what you pay for,” into “you’ll pay for what you got!”
With that kind of creativity and confidence going in, you know it is going to be different. I don't know exactly what Matt has in store, but if it is like his past conferences, it will be well worth every penny.
As I write this, there are about 25 spots left for LexThink Innovate. I hope to see you there.
