CPR’s Annual Meeting (virtual), “PREVENT! Resolution Without Dispute”
What if you could prevent disputes thereby preventing litigation costs? Preserve relationships? Keep employees and professionals focused on business purpose? Stay on track with your business goals? A dispute is not inevitable. But it can be detrimental. Commercial disputes – like all conflict that escalates into hardened “do or die” positions – wreak havoc on parties. High costs, distractions, and delays of traditional litigation can damage the health of an organization and can sometimes even bring on its demise. At the very least, a formal dispute can destroy business relationships, and divert critical attention and resources away from innovation and achieving individual and corporate purpose. There has to be a better way to anticipate and thoughtfully address conflicts before they evolve into full-blown legal disputes. At CPR’s 2021 Annual Meeting, come join the discussion with high-level panelists to explore a wide range of approaches to defuse potential and developing conflicts, so we can identify together practical and actionable preventative takeaways, skills and strategies we all need to succeed. So just stop it! Before it starts. For the first time in CPR history, the 2021 Annual Meeting is going virtual – in a live and reimagined way. We had hoped to bring you to Austin, Texas this year. But due to the COVID-19 pandemic, ongoing concerns about travel, health, and safety – and in the spirit of Prevention and with the best interests of our community in mind – we will instead be bringing Austin, Texas to you through an innovative and interactive virtual format with the same great content. Registration for CPR's 2021 Annual Meeting will open soon!
