#JDHorizons

Cultivating a Culture of Curiosity

We are pleased to announce the 2019 dates for our coveted Janders Dean Legal Horizons Conference series. The famous gatherings of our amazing client community and exclusive friends from across the industry will be taking place in London on 21 June 2019, and in Sydney on 24-25 July 2019.

Our London experience will take place in a brand new venue, the prestigious 5 star hotel in the heart of Holborn: Rosewood London.  Golden ticket VIP guest invitations for our London conference will be sent out soon – keep an eye out on your post to see if you are invited get curious with Janders Dean in 2019. Unlike any event series in legal – and often the early launch pad for ideas, speakers, and industry trends – Janders Dean events are exclusively for those who we all know are senior decision makers, influencers, and those with the power to truly transform the industry.

Our goals for #JDHorizons in 2019 remain the same as always – we are deliberately not a trade show, we are deliberately not wanting to be the biggest event from an attendee or sponsorship perspective, we are deliberately not a #LegalTech event, and we deliberately avoid games and gimmicks designed to simply temporarily turn heads – instead, we aim to bring the very best speakers and the very best content to our delegate community. You will never see the #SameOldSameOld at #JDHorizons. We aim to unapologetically set the tone and cement the trends for the years ahead.

We can’t wait to welcome you to our family of disruptors and fire starters. Let’s do this.

The Janders Dean Team

Sustainability

We love our gatherings, we do. However we’re getting frustrated by the increasing amount of waste that is created during our events. It’s not cool, and we’re not cool with it. On the positive side, we’re not alone in thinking about this, and wanting to make a change.At a recent caffeine fuelled chill-out and collaborate session with the LegalGeek gang in London, we collectively hit on this as something that we could (and should) both do better at. So, let’s do this.

Starting now, the Janders Dean gang have teamed up with LegalGeek to work to reduce the waste generated at our respective events, and to find ways to be more environmentally friendly. We are both aiming to become carbon neutral over time, and we’ll be sharing lessons and ideas with each other so as to make this happen as quickly as possible.
This won’t be easy, and we’ll make some mistakes. We’re open to ideas from our collective communities as to how to make these changes, and you’ll see us both start to report our progress and share our ideas as to how you too can make a difference.
We both have the power to make changes in the way we plan and execute our events, and we both have a responsibility to take a stance and show continued leadership in this area.

You can let us know what you think by getting behind the campaign on social media, using the hashtags:

#GoGreenGeek#GoGreenDean

Feel free to email us your ideas and any feedback to events@jandersdean and hello@legalgeek.co
