Not Enough Time – The Solicitor

A senior partner of a large city practice of solicitors was at his wits end having been given the task of explaining recent changes in the law to an audience of fellow solicitors. He was not only concerned by the size and knowledgeable group he was about to speak to, but unable to include everything he needed to say within the time frame he’d been given. After addressing his nerves and feelings of self-consciousness, he agreed to change the objective of his talk from one of explanation, to one of encouraging his audience to research the bulk of the changes in the law for themselves – leaving him plenty of time to impress his audience by simply discussing the finer points of the changes that required greater clarification.
