Immediation, an international online dispute resolution provider, announced the official launch of its “Immediation Dinner Dialogues” program. The program features a series of invitation-only thought leadership dinner events with industry influencers to discuss opportunities for dispute resolution sector a multi-billion dollar component of legal services. The series was devised in Jeffersonian style, to provoke debate and generate solutions and innovation.
How vital have the Immediation Dinner Dialogues been?
The news follows a soft launch during Legal Week 2022 in New York in March where over 25 guests met to discuss sustainability in dispute resolution at the New York Botanical Garden, featuring commentary from Michael Hollis, a scientist on the frontline of climate change.
This was followed by a second event in April in Melbourne with sports leaders, to illuminate the need to preserve integrity in sport through progressive complaint management options.
This event coincided with a gathering of sport administrators in Melbourne for the Sport Nxt Conference and the Grand Prix, and featured insights from Australian sports ambassadors like Steve Moneghetti, Abbey Holmes, Jason Akermanis, Chris Annestley and Steven Bradbury.
“During Legal Week in New York, we gathered the world’s top arbitration centers, senior law firm Partners and corporate counsel to discuss elevating sustainability actions, resolution measures in the dispute resolution industry,” said Laura Keily, CEO and Founder, Immediation.
“That experience, combined with an overwhelming response in Melbourne, illustrated that our industry responds to Immediation’s approach of driving forward-thinking dialogue. We continue to conduct this series throughout the year to unlock more innovative solutions.”
When are the next events slated?
Another event of the Immediation Dinner Dialogues series took place on May 4th 2022 during the 21st International Online Dispute Resolution Forum in Dublin, Ireland. Additional Immediation Dinners are planned for July 2022 during NACM in Milwaukee; in August 2022 during ILTA in Washington, D.C.; and in September during ICCA Congress in Edinburgh.
“Immediation is taking a refreshing approach with these Jeffersonian-style dinners that I believe can play important role in advancing the industry. The event in New York featured a relatively small number of experts who were passionate about the issue at hand, and that really energized the dialogue,” said David Stanton, Litigation Partner at Pillsbury.
To extend the value of the Dinner Dialogues, Immediation will publish general synopses of the conversations on a page of the Immediation website. By sharing ideas, Immediation hopes to to drive momentum as the industry progresses through a tectonic shift into the digital age.
