Collaboration Kickoffs

Sunday from 4:00 – 5:30 p.m.

We will continue our highly-popular, custom learning roadmaps for small and mid-sized firm leaders, innovators, knowledge managers, corporate leaders, c-suite professionals, litigation support professionals, marketing technologists, trainers, and core IT. Our journey begins on Sunday afternoon with facilitated and interactive collaboration kickoffs for each audience group, where you will make connections with peers and discuss common issues. The collaboration sessions are very different from the Communities of Interest sessions that were held on Sunday afternoon in past years. In the past it was common and made sense for attendees to float from group to group. To get the most out of the collaboration sessions this year we recommend you pick the audience you are most interested in working with and remain with that group.
As always we will have evaluations on these sessions and will be very interested in your feedback on this new format.
Your journey will continue through targeted and general education sessions and on Tuesday afternoon explore collaboration deep dives for each of the nine audience groups to continue the conversation. On Thursday afternoon, you’ll come back together to wrap-up and talk about how ILTA can fill any connection and education gaps going forward.
