ILTA Announces Keynote and Lineup of Educational Learning Pathways for ILTACON 2018

The International Legal Technology Association (ILTA) announced today Lisa
Bodell, globally recognized innovation leader and futurist, will
open their annual conference as the Monday keynote speaker at ILTACON
2018 event in Washington, DC.

The premier legal technology conference will bring together leaders,
managers and decision-making legal technologists from small to large
sized law firms, corporate and government law departments, academia and
the G100 firms to discover and evolve successful legal operation
strategies for today’s transforming legal industry.

Lisa is the founder of futurethink, where she developed a simple
approach to the otherwise complicated topic of innovation. Monday’s
Keynote “Kill the Company – End the Status Quo, Start an Innovation
Revolution” will be an informational call to arms to think
differently and address the structures put in place to at first help
organizations grow, but are now holding firms back. Lisa unites
strategically driven ideas with forward-thinking themes in her talks,
and is ideally suited to address the diverse audience of legal
technologists and innovators in attendance at ILTACON. She is the author
of several books, including: Why Simple Wins: Escape the Complexity
Trap and Get to Work That Matters; and Kill the Company: End the
Status Quo, Start an Innovation Revolution.

“Our member firms are stepping into areas of innovation at an
unprecedented rate, and the demand for information on innovative
programs is only going up,” said Angela Dowd, President of the Board,
ILTA. “That is why we’re keen on presenting a thought-provoking keynote
like Lisa’s to make an impact, and get our membership talking in a whole
new way.”

The full line up at ILTACON 2018 will include over 175 educational
sessions; 2 additional general sessions with panelists and moderated
discussions and success stories; 7 multi-day deep dive series covering
Innovation, AI, Blockchain, Data Analytics, Moving to the Cloud, O365,
and Security; over 60 product demonstration rooms hosted by business
partners which total over 200 across the exhibit show floor; key
networking and evening fun events over each of the 4 nights; over 12
start up technology disruptors and growth partners; a one day,
invite-only G100 (Global 100 Top Law Firms) CIO Forum; Women Who Lead
sessions; and a large ILTA member Hub for members to gather on the
central exhibit hall floor to meet other members, learn more about
member benefits, content and educational offerings year round, venture
out to meet business partners, and learn how to maximize the value of
their member and volunteer options.

“2018 marks another transformational year for the legal technology and
services industry,” said Dan Liutikas, CEO of ILTA. “ILTA remains
focused on providing our members opportunities to discuss critical
future state possibilities, and Lisa’s insights and actionable strategies
will help set the framework for Conference this year.”
