Wednesday Keynote

Welcome to ILTACON Europe & Keynote: Leadership Under Stress: Exploring Project Failure at NASA

On Wednesday, we are excited to feature this captivating keynote speaker, with his compelling insights directly relevant to the practice and business of a law firm. Prepare to be highly engaged and glad you were there to hear this incredible perspective. In the year in which we celebrate fifty years since putting a man on the moon, Stephen Carver, Senior Lecturer in Project and Programme Management at Cranfield School of Management, will take us on a journey through NASA’s intense organisational and project management challenges, up to and beyond those pivotal “Go/No Go” decisions that happened the night before a space launch. Stephen will speak about the exposure of NASA’s shortcomings leading to failures. He will connect how these failures and innovations can be implemented in law firm technology projects.

Thursday Keynote

Keynote Panel Discussion: The 2020 Vision for The Legal Sector

General counsel and leading suppliers share their predictions, expectations and challenges for the future of the legal sector in 2020 and beyond. With an expert moderator, we will align and counterpoint the discussion with insights from a panel of legal technology suppliers. These experts in client engagement will share how to master client-driven demand, exceed expectations, and offer their vantage points from the front lines to where they see the sector evolving. We’ll explore shared common ground, and highlight where there is less crossover and collaboration, to help the industry think about the areas we need to work together to improve.
