Mr. Woodward represents a high watermark for professional achievement in his discipline, and I can’t think of a better way to start Legalweek than a festive night bringing together so many accomplished professionals.
PORTLAND, Ore. (PRWEB) November 06, 2018
Zapproved LLC, the market leader in ediscovery software solutions for corporate legal teams, today announced that the third annual Corporate Ediscovery Hero Awards, which celebrate innovators and achievers in ediscovery practice, will host celebrated journalist and author Bob Woodward as featured guest. The awards ceremony will take place at New York City’s elegant Edison Ballroom on Monday, January 28, 2019.
Woodward, an associate editor of The Washington Post, has shared in two Pulitzer Prizes, first in 1973 for the coverage of the Watergate scandal with Carl Bernstein, and second in 2002 as the lead reporter for coverage of the 9/11 terrorist attacks. He is the author of 19 national best-selling books, including his classic expose of the Nixon Watergate scandal “All the President’s Men.” Bob Schieffer of CBS News has said, “Woodward has established himself as the best reporter of our time. He may be the best reporter of all time.” Digital forensics expert and nationally recognized leader in ediscovery, Craig Ball, will lead a discussion with Mr. Woodward ranging from his extraordinary career to his perspectives on how the practice of journalism and politics are evolving in the shifting world of social media.
"We’re proud to welcome an American icon and pillar of journalism in Bob Woodward to help celebrate the accomplishments of our ediscovery community,” said Brad Harris, event host and Vice President of Corporate Strategy at Zapproved. “Mr. Woodward represents a high watermark for professional achievement in his discipline, and I can’t think of a better way to start Legalweek than a festive night bringing together so many accomplished professionals.”
The Corporate Ediscovery Hero Awards honor in-house legal professionals who contribute excellence and leadership in advancing ediscovery processes and practices. Nominations in four unique categories were processed, and then reviewed and scored by an independent panel of federal judges and ediscovery veterans. The awards ceremony will also reveal this year’s Lifetime Achievement Award winner along with the Pinnacle Award winners, which recognize ediscovery contributors outside of corporate legal teams.
The Hero Awards were established in 2017 to recognize the often overlooked corporate legal, compliance, and IT team members who improve efficiency, reduce costs, and lower risk through creativity and innovation for their organizations. Past winners have included representatives from Fortune 500 companies such as Toyota, Hess, Caesars Entertainment, and ConocoPhillips.
The awards ceremony is open to ediscovery industry professionals. Registration information and event details can be found at CorporateEdiscovery.com/heroawards.
