Thursday 4 November: Maximising the benefits of Word 2010 and the .docx format while minimising the risks (9:00am to 11:45am, light breakfast will be provided) Join the document experts to learn how to live in this world of hybrid document formats. The benefits of Word 2010 – such as a more efficient and stable environment and improved firm image to clients – are compelling. Yet the new format requires new workflows.Without planning and training, these changes may lead to confusion by your lawyers and secretaries. The discussion will focus on how to maximise the benefit while minimising the risk of migrating to Word 2010 and the .docx format. We will also share best practices for collaborating with your clients and preserving the integrity of your documents.
