CIArb PolicyCast – exploring the key issues in dispute resolution

23 Jun 2020

Drawing on the pedigree of podcasting within CIArb and the need for interesting and accessible content on ADR, we are proud to be able to bring you the CIArb PolicyCast. PolicyCast sessions are available here.

This podcast series aims to widen CIArb’s appeal by releasing a more accessible product, whilst still pursuing the high level of professionalism, integrity and content quality that is synonymous with its name.

Our goal is to position CIArb as an attractive destination for those who seek more information about CIArb’s areas of expertise – practitioners and non-practitioners alike – as well as putting CIArb in a position where our work could be subjected to a larger audience and be given increased longevity by making attractive content easily available on selected platforms for audial and visual media.

Via the installation of a monthly podcast series featuring interesting guests speaking on themes of great importance to both current and potential stakeholders, CIArb’s attractiveness is projected to increase amongst those just getting introduced to the organization as well as long-time members. The podcast being released on several platforms and in multiple formats also means that its usability will remain high even after the initial release date of each episode.

The episodes are recorded and edited to instalments no longer than 20-30 minutes, wherein a topically relevant professional and/or expert sits down with a representative from the policy team to discuss a current issue of interest to CIArb, its members, and laymen alike. Each episode is centered around a particular theme and result in a tangible recommendation, projection, or prognosis that will enable listeners to make more informed decisions in work-related matters or simply serve as a means of providing top-tier knowledge to the public in accordance with the organization’s mission to promote and facilitate worldwide the determination of disputes by arbitration in accordance with its Royal Charter.

Ideally, new episodes are due as often as on a weekly basis, and the first episode in the series, featuring Ms. Lucy Greenwood C.Arb FCIArb in conversation with CIArb Head of Policy Mr. Lewis Johnston ACIArb, is set to be released momentarily on the CIArb website and CIArb YouTube channel.

Again, we are beyond excited to bring you all what we feel is a fresh, interesting, and exciting take on the promotion of the virtues of ADR, and we hope that you will find the PolicyCast to be as engaging and informative as we do.
