Leading in a More Collaborative World

Today even the most hierarchical of organisations do business collaboratively. Teams and colleagues collaborate with each other internally, executives negotiate with strategic partners, suppliers and customers through both traditional and social networks.       The talk will explore the implications for leading and managing especially in the areas of power, influence and change. We will also discuss the emphasis for support and development by HR for and with the business community.

This event is most suitable for HR and Senior Executives, but all are very welcome! Read the rest of this entry »

From the business perspective, every dollar that goes to the cost of disputes is a dollar less for business.  For the customer or consumer, it means a dollar more. For many years, the only option available to parties who had a dispute was to go to court. However, things are different now with mediation proving to be increasingly popular as a quick and cost-effective tool for resolving disputes without destroying business relationships in the process.

In November 2014, the Singapore International Mediation Centre (SIMC) was launched to offer a mediation service designed specifically for cross-border disputes. SIMC’s performance in its initial year has exceeded expectations and its unique Arb-Med-Arb service which combines arbitration and mediation in a simple one-stop process has been called “what users have always wanted”.

Come and hear from Mr Lok Vi Ming, SC, Director of SIMC as he shares through a “live” simulation of mediation the benefits of mediation and how businesses can use mediation as part of their conflict management strategy.

Due to unforeseen circumstances, we will unfortunately have to cancel the breakfast meeting on  9 March.

If you have already paid in the fee, you will be reimbursed.

We are very sorry for this, but it is beyond our control.
