CEO update | August 2022 | See you at the Resolution Institute International Conference 2022




Dear Members,

This year’s conference, to be held in Sydney on Friday, 7 October is shaping up to be the dispute resolution event of the year. Spanning all areas of dispute resolution and bringing together leaders in the field, it will provide members and the DR community with the up-to-date knowledge, leading case studies, industry best practices and inspiration to enhance your career and practice.

It will also give you the opportunity to network with your peers and colleagues in a long-overdue face-to-face event. Reflect on the recent trends and the importance of dispute resolution as we look to the future and green shoots of recovery.

I am pleased to launch the current programme which will be updated with further speakers, topics and sponsors in the leadup.  Primarily the conference on 7 October will include plenaries, concurrent sessions in the fields of Arbitration, Mediation, Family Dispute Resolution and Other. Preceding the conference, on 6 October, we will be conducting masterclasses at the Sofitel Sydney Wentworth followed by the Welcome Cocktail Reception which will be hosted by Clayton Utz at their award-winning venue, which sets new standards for sustainability and innovation in high-rise development in Australia.  

The conference dinner, which includes drinks and a three-course dining experience, promises to bring a fun, social networking atmosphere as you dine over a three-course meal. Our confirmed dinner speaker is the President of the NSW Court of Appeal, The Honourable Justice Julie Ward.

With a diverse range of plenaries and sessions running across the four streams, together with social and networking opportunities, this event is not to be missed! Explore the conference website for the speaker bios, session information, day-to-day programme, and agenda details.
