Burges Salmon puts focus on innovation and advanced tech with B-Innovative Week

The firm hosted daily events dedicated to innovation and advanced technology

21 January 2019

Burges Salmon has wrapped up its first instalment of B-Innovative Week, a firm-wide initiative aimed at educating and inspiring the firm’s people about how they work, both internally and directly with the firm’s clients.   

During the week commencing 14 to 18 January, the firm collaborated with We the Curious and the University of Bristol, amongst others, to offer daily internal presentations on topics including the importance of being curious and how to innovate in professional services. The firm’s atrium also hosted demonstrations of cutting-edge tech projects including touchable haptic technology (from Ultrahaptics) and AI. 

B-Innovative ties in with the firm’s strategic focus ‘Innovative service delivery’, which highlights the collaborative approach to client service delivery taken by the firm’s lawyers, project managers, innovation specialists and technologists. 

The initiative was coordinated by the firm’s Business Solutions and Learning and Development teams, led by Head of Business Solutions, Rachel Roberts. 

Rachel says: “We are encouraging and involving everyone in the firm to get stuck in with using new technologies and approaches. As a forward-thinking business, we designed this event to inspire our people and ultimately to improve our service delivery to clients. It was fantastic that all of the sessions were booked out, and this shows the level of enthusiasm across the business.”
