All things in balance – life, work, to do lists, your body and mind

Tina Ng is a solicitor practicing in predominately family law and child protection law. She opened Metta Legal with the intention of helping others through her work as a lawyer, and through her mentoring program to help young lawyers. Right next door to her firm in Bankstown is the Metta Centre, a charity she founded to support wellbeing in the community. Metta Centre provides weekly free classes on wellbeing, meditation, and yoga to the community as well as in the local libraries. It also runs free workshops and urban retreats on some weekends, on topics such as handling stress, forgiveness practice, loving-kindness meditation, mindfulness meditation, grief and loss workshops, and courses for parents to attend with their children to bring these practices into the home. As a lawyer running her own firm, supporting Metta Centre and other charitable projects, giving talks at various locations, Tina has had to find ways to balance her own busy life and busy mind.

Brand and marketing are important, but networking is critical

Angela Corbett is a Relationship Specialist at Condon Advisory Group.  Angela has an extensive background in Marketing and Sales going back some 40 years and has worked in numerous industries from Hardware to Media to now Accounting.  Angela is currently the Relationship Specialist with Condon Advisory Group where building strong personal relationships with clients is a key factor in generating new business for the Company.

While branding and marketing are important and many lawyers are spending time trying to learn these things themselves, we might have forgotten what we are best at.  Angela will talk to us about why networking is critical and how to network with purpose.  She will give us real life examples of what she is doing to grow the client base at Condon Advisory Group, not through choosing a logo or colours or an advertising budget, but through networking, phone calls, meetings with potential referrers, planning with marketing, organising presenters and building good relationships with referrers.
