Description

As stay-at-home orders begin to ease, law firms are facing an imminent "re-entry" into their offices – but with significant changes to the way they've traditionally operated. This demands a level of technological flexibility and agility that many firms are not fully equipped to provide or support. Based on all indications, the coming months will feature staggered employee arrival times, changes to open office designs and shared desks, assigned days to work from the office or remotely, and perhaps more waves of working exclusively from home.

The program will cover:
  • How the pandemic will reshape our work arrangements for the long haul
  • The security implications of a highly mobile workforce How to build a seamless work experience from anywhere
  • How to keep a dispersed team engaged and productive

Heinan Landa

Founder & CEO
Optimal Networks

Almost 30 years ago, I did something kind of crazy. I stole a vacant office from my parents, hung up a self-constructed banner that read “Optimal Networks,” and called myself a business owner.

My plan: I’d build an IT services company that would not only provide its clients with mind-blowing service, but have serious fun doing so.

I had the technical know-how thanks to a BS and MS from Hopkins, I had the entrepreneurial drive thanks to an MBA from Wharton, and I really, really liked having a good time. There had to be a way to blend all of these facets together while maintaining an aggressive commitment to honesty and ethics. …Right?

Well, here we are over two decades later, over 30 people and 200 clients strong. How did it all turn out? Please turn your attention to Exhibit A, Exhibit B, and — if you’re particular about unbiased sources — Exhibit C.

While you’ll never see me claim sole credit for where Optimal is today (it was a massive team effort), you might hear me talk about how incredible it’s been to see those wild ideas jump from continuous-feed computer paper to fiercely real life.
