Janders Dean Horizons Sydney 2017

20/21 September 2017 – Pier One, Sydney
#JDHorizons

About the Event

Janders Dean is pleased to announce the 2017 Sydney Legal Horizons Conference. This event will be held on Wednesday & Thursday 20-21 September 2017 at Pier One Sydney. The team has worked hard to bring you yet another event with a diverse and experienced speaking faculty from across the globe – no same old, same old – only inspirational sessions designed to expand your thinking and your network.

For those of you who have attended this event in the past, you will know that this is not simply a bunch of “experts” speaking at an audience for the full day. It is the diversity of message and medium, the creation of a space for emergence and collaboration, and the intentionally dangerous agenda and speaking faculty from inside and outside of legal, that all combine to make this the leading conference to discuss all aspects of the legal industry’s horizons.

We look forward to welcoming you to this unique and coveted event, and to constantly striving towards the future horizon.

Some responses from past attendees…
“By far the best legal conference I have been to…topics, agenda, sponsors, food, drink, location and invitees were all top notch – struggling to think of anything you need to improve at all”

“The event was inspirational and remarkably well structured. thanks again for a great conference. The setup was something other conference organizers should take after. Not a dull moment and each speaker more interesting than the next”

“Thanks so much for another excellent event. I’ve been talking non-stop to anyone who will listen with so many new ideas. while some technology events come close, Friday’s event excelled in highlighting the need for lateral thinking across businesses of all sorts.”

“Such a fantastic event”

“Certainly a class apart from anything else I have ever attended”

“How much I enjoyed the event of Friday. I am distinctly jaded by the usual round of industry events, and yet yours over both years has been a refreshing change”
