  • Different ways to approach qualifying phrases;
  • Time periods; and many more.

Speaker:

Cathy Wilcox, Director, Cathy Wilcox Training Ltd
Cathy is passionate about the written word, and passionate about encouraging others to write and draft simply, effectively and correctly. A lawyer for more than 30 years, she was a dispute resolution partner at a city law firm before becoming its global director of legal training. As a former partner, she understands the need to make any legal writing and drafting accessible to the reader, but also to manage legal risk through clarity.
Cathy set up her own training company in 2012, and has trained thousands of lawyers and other professionals. Her training style is informal, energetic and interactive. She comes from a long line of teachers and loves watching participants working together. Most people learn by doing, and a lively session with plenty of exercises helps reinforce the learning. The words most often used to describe her training style are “engaging”, “enthusiastic” and “passionate”.
