I run a quarterly speaker series in New York City and by webcast called the DEH Speaker Series. The events are typically hosted by large law firms and take place weekdays, over lunch. I’ve run hundreds of these events for 20 years. The events usually draw 100 - 200 in-person attendees and the webcast audience includes companies, law firms and non-profits worldwide, attracting up to 1,000 participants for each event. The topics vary and generally fall into three categories: careers/workplaces, women and law. The program formats range from one-on-one interviews with thought leaders to keynotes, facilitations, panel discussions, workshops, breakout sessions and more. Many law firms purchase corporate memberships so that their lawyers can participate in the quarterly events in person and by webcast. The events are often used to supplement company and firm internal professional development, women’s initiatives and/or diversity programming.
