On January 31, Venturis Consulting gave an in-depth presentation on cases pertaining to the legal consulting industry. The presentation began with an analysis of their business and the specific industry that Venturis is involved in.

Groups broke off and analysed the case, presenting their findings at the end of the session. These findings were discussed by the company representatives from Venturis, and the groups broke off again to formalize their recommendations.
