ELITE report on their APAC user conference
Elite held its annual Asia Pacific User Group Meeting last week on October 26 & 27 – the event was attended by 80 delegates. The free event was hosted by Blake Dawson, Elite’s newest 3E client and Elite say the the team at Blakes set a new standard in delivering excellent facilities and service over the two days.
The meeting included updates on Elite’s products and services and workshop sessions designed to encourage a transparent and collaborative environment where clients can share their successes and their challenges with each other and Elite. Also included were a number of sessions from Elite’s Business of Law division which consists of Elite, Hubbard One, Baker Robbins Hildebrandt and Findlaw.
Attending the user group from the US were Dan O’Day, Senior Director of Product Management and Enrico Lombardino, Principal Software Engineer and their involvement across the two days in sessions and workshops helped highlight the unique challenges Asia Pacific law firms face and helped reinforced Elite’s commitment to the region. Dan O’Day said “The enthusiasm and excitement of the Elite APAC users was infectious making it well worth the investment of the time and effort.”
The end of the first day’s proceedings saw the group make their way to King’s Street Wharf for a harbour tour provided by Prestige Harbour Tours and sponsored by iOctane, Phoenix Business Solutions, APS and Hubbard One. The cruise was followed by an informal dinner on the wharf.
At the conclusion of the event current chairman Allister Spencer from McCullough Robertson stood down after three years in the position and Robert Stewart, Control Systems Manager at Blake Dawson, took up the role.
