What is strategic planning, why do you need to do it and where do you start?

  • How is it different to annual business planning?
  • How do you get everyone involved?

Join ALPMA in a conversation with Nigel McBride to explore these questions and any other questions you have been afraid to ask.


Presented by:

Nigel McBride


As Managing Partner and CEO of Minter Ellison Adelaide, Nigel brought substantial change management, new market share strategies and a client centric approach over his 12 year term. Using targeted lateral recruitment, and a winning internal culture, the firm developed market leading teams in key practice areas. He led Minters to become the largest commercial law firm in the state with sustained client and revenue growth.

This was recognised by the BRW-St Georges Client Choice Awards for Best Professional Services Firm in South Australia in 2005 (the inaugural award) and by winning the same award again in 2006, with subsequent awards and recognitions, including the CMS 2008 Innovation in Legal IT award.

Nigel introduced case management technology and a pricing strategy that delivered the firm a sole provider role in what became the most enduring and lucrative defendant legal services contract in SA. He launched the Darwin office of Minter Ellison, was a keynote speaker internationally on marketing and leveraging technology, and was part of the inaugural Leadership in Law Firms program at Harvard University alongside heads of global firms.

Nigel also facilitated strategy, risk and opportunity workshops with boards and senior management teams of key clients to successfully create a more holistic and partnering approach to those relationships.

Subsequently, as CEO of Business SA for 7 years, Nigel deepened his understanding of the key issues and challenges facing businesses and employers in a challenging market.
