“Everything that was on the agenda was relevant to me and my business. The attendees were all high level, all directly reporting to senior management or senior partners at law firms, or high level executives from the solution providers.”

Vice President, General Counsel & Corporate Secretary | AGCO Corporation

“I’ve been impressed that the delegates have come to the meeting with me prepared and with a clear interest in talking to me about the services my company offers. The overall concentration of quality attendees here is superior to just about any other conference I’ve attended, so whether it’s the one-to-one meetings or the person that you’re sitting with at lunch, chances are that you’ll be with someone you want to speak with.”

Vice President, Legal Technologies Business Development | Kroll Ontrack

“The Solution Providers are not overpopulated here, so when I turn around to talk to someone, it’s not a competitor of mine or someone trying to sell me services.”

Of Counsel | Squire Sanders

“This is a group of people at this senior level that you might find in a conference of 500 people. You might find this exact same group of 50, just mixed in amongst the rest of the attendees. What Consero has done is pulled out those most senior in-house counsel and put them all together in one place.”

Vice President, Chief Legal Counsel — Corporate & Chief Compliance Officer | IHS, Inc.

“Our experience has been outstanding. We have met some really great potential new clients. I think that the structure of the meetings and the intimacy of the meeting room was really conducive to what we we’re trying to accomplish. We attend the other trade shows and I refer to them inside our company as a necessary evil. We get very little accomplished. It’s not nearly as intimate as this was.”

Chief Executive Officer | Inventus

“The Forum was really well run. There were a lot of senior level people with excellent experience.”

Vice President, Legal | HD Supply, Inc.

“I have been very impressed with the individuals I have met with. They are key decision makers. But even more than that, they actually genuinely appear to be willing to enter into discourse. And as a solution provider, that is all that you can ask for. I certainly have had a positive experience with Consero, and I would not hesitate to recommend them again.”

Vice President, Legal Services | Integreon

“Consero’s Forum is a new and innovative and unique opportunity. The format of this conference is very well done because there is just the right balance between programs, meetings and the meeting times. Now a lot of those programs, it’s speed dating, 15 minutes with these people, 15 minutes with those people, and you don’t really get a chance to spend a lot of quality time learning about the products, meeting with the service providers and getting a feel for them. Here you get much more time to do that because there are fewer service providers, so you’re not being rushed through and the conference is not trying to force you to see 15 or 20 different people. You get to see three, four, five, six people and then there’s also the downtime during lunch and dinner when you get an opportunity to talk with those people again.”

Vice President & General Counsel | Buzzi Unicem USA Inc.

“One differentiating factor of this Forum compared to others that I’ve attended is meeting many more Deputy GCs and General Counsel.”

Senior Vice President, Sales & Operations | Mitratech

“I was very excited to see that it was a smaller group of people, all high level people, mostly General Counsel, where you could really interact with them one-on-one or in smaller groups to really gain some knowledge and exchange ideas.”

Vice President & General Counsel | The Dannon Company

“The quality of delegates is absolutely top tier. One of the best parts of the conference is that we have had a lot of one-on-one time with the delegates who are very keen to speak to us. It’s not that we’re here to make a sales pitch to them; they have asked to speak to us—a really refreshing approach.”

Director, Legal Services Outsourcing | CPA Global

“The quality of the delegates at the Consero Forum has been fantastic. Some of the differences between Consero and some of the other providers on the market is their preparation for the meetings and pairing of delegates to myself and the Mitratech staff. Number two, the quality of the event is far superior.”

Vice President of Sales | Mitratech

“A great gathering bringing together senior counsel to learn about best practices in technology and services to help better manage legal departments.”

Vice President and General Counsel | Amadeus North America

“In this economy it is very difficult to convince a law firm to pay to play, but I think there are real business opportunities out of the Forum. That’s what attracted me to come in the first place . . . . Who was coming at a certain level and the fact that they were coming from mostly Fortune 500 and Fortune 100 companies, so to me the quality of the delegates is top rate.”

Equity Partner | Squire Sanders

“What I would say to a colleague evaluating the General Counsel Forum is make sure you take a look at the depth and the quality of the providers and the presenters that are made available to you. If you’re going to take time to . . . . go to an event like this, it needs to be worthwhile, and I found this to be a legitimately worthwhile event. I didn’t really know what to expect from the KnowledgeBridgeTMs and business meetings that I had, but I found them both to be very rewarding. The KnowledgeBridgeTMs were . . . . extremely impactful and there was a good exchange of ideas between peers.”

Vice President & Deputy General Counsel | Sally Beauty Holdings, Inc.
