ILANZ conference 2019 - Registrations Now Open!

ILANZ conference 2019 - Registrations Now Open!

By Tiffany Henderson , ILANZ event manager| 3 February 2019

This year we will be taking a bird’s eye view of the in-house legal profession as we scan the current landscape and the horizon beyond. The wingspan of the in-house lawyer spreads beyond legal opinion to the role of trusted advisor and strategic contributor.

Like the mighty albatross, the in-house lawyer needs excellent navigational skills to ensure they achieve optimal results and stay out of choppy waters.

Te Tiro Iho a Te Manu provides us with the opportunity to canvass a wide range of issues of relevance to in-house lawyers including legal, practice management and soft skills sessions.

We are delighted to announce keynote speakers Shamubeel Eaqub,Economist, author, media commentator, Grevis Beard, Co-Founder & Director, Worklogic and Nicola Brown, efficiency, organisational and executive coach.

We warmly welcome our MC for 2019, Ward Kamo.

Why you need to attend:

  1. This is the largest gathering of in-house lawyers in New Zealand with a customised programme of professional learning designed by in-house lawyers for in-house lawyers.
  2. A great opportunity to share ideas and discuss challenges with fellow in-house counsel and to learn from each other while building your professional networks within the profession.
  3. You can meet a substantial proportion of your CPD requirements for the year at one event and maximise your valuable time out of the office.
  4. To be updated on best practice and recent developments affecting you and your organisation, that will enable you to take what you've learned back to the office and put it into immediate use.
  5. To celebrate the valuable contribution made by the in-house legal profession.

Networking functions

Join us on the Wednesday evening at the Distinction Hotel, Dunedin for a welcome drink and the opportunity to meet your fellow conference participants.

On the Thursday evening, we will be heading to the Otago Museum for an evening of entertainment, activities, great food, and ample opportunity for catching up with your peers and making new connections.

On Friday night we will celebrate with the Niche Gala Dinner and Awards Ceremony at the iconic Dunedin Town Hall. There will be a pre-dinner drink in the lobby of the Dunedin Town Hall from 6.45pm.

This year the dinner has a masquerade theme - you are welcome to come in black tie or evening gown, business suit or cocktail wear and accessorise with a mask - be it as simple or elaborate as you see fit.
