“The biggest investment we made in 2018 is that we put the right team in place.” –Ulf Zetterberg, Seal Software co-founder and CEO
Last May, I joined the Seal contract analytics family and have been looking forward to Kickoff ever since. This year, our annual Kickoff was held at the Luxor in Las Vegas, where over 200 Seal’s from 5+ countries and 11 departments came together to discuss our goals and vision for the contract discovery and analytics market in 2019. We participated in planning and strategy sessions as well as interactive breakouts that truly set the tone for the year.
Seal’s supportive and collaborative culture never ceases to amaze me, and Kickoff was a true reflection of the team spirit that Seal fosters. On Day 1, camaraderie filled the room as I met Seals from across the world and connected with old friends. With the entire legal AI organization together, there was an undeniable sense of encouragement and support from the start. Every Seal brings something special to the company and with the right contract analytics team in place, there is nothing we can’t achieve.

This year’s theme, “Focus and Execution” could not have been more fitting. As Kickoff commenced, we discussed strategy and positioning across the organization and within our respective departments. From Customer Success to Finance, company leaders conveyed their goals and expectations for the year ahead and inspired us to achieve them. The desire for everyone to succeed is evident as we continue to drive innovation and leadership within the Contract Discovery, Legal AI, and Contract Analytics market.
It is no secret that transparency within organizations is vital. Throughout Kickoff, it was clear the value Seal places on everyone within the contract analytics company and the usual respect between management and employees. Throughout the week’s sessions, there was a level of transparency that not only promoted realistic goal-setting but facilitated trust and engagement. This is the same value I recognized when I first onboarded at Seal and I am proud to be a part of a contract discovery company that prioritizes respect, accountability, and mutual decision-making.
And these values are not confined to only the Seal employees, they are also evident within the Seal ecosystem and we were delighted to have a senior executive of DocuSign spend time with us talking about our partnership and the synergies that the two organizations have.
Leaving Kickoff, I have a newfound perspective and motivation for the year ahead. Our leaders have a strong vision and I am confident that we will execute and meet our goals. This year’s Kickoff highlighted the Seal family bond and inspired me to work even harder for the team because, at the end of the day, we win together!
As I embark on everything that 2019 has to offer, I am grateful to be surrounded by a team that supports and uplifts me. The environment that Seal fosters is truly like no other. If you are looking to join a passionate and supportive legal AI company, be sure to take a look at our Careers page.
