Webinar | Shifting cultures and mindsets in International Mediation


Shifting cultures and mindsets in International Mediation

Friday, 10 September 2021 | 4.00PM – 5.00PM (SGT)

While we are generally averse to conflicts, particularly in harmony-valuing Asia, encountering disagreements in human relationships is unavoidable. Success, in business and in family, lies in how we can overcome these disagreements quickly, use them to deepen mutual understanding, and perhaps even leverage on them to create new value for all parties involved.

Over the last decade, there has been a strong movement led by courts, governments, and businesses to promote mediation as a dispute resolution mechanism for commercial, civil and family disputes. Many individuals and corporations are now aware of the significant cost savings and benefits to business reputation and continuity. With the confidence to steer the discussions, they are ready to initiate mediation, sometimes even before a writ is filed. Mediation as a practice has also grown in sophistication and some professional mediators now boast settlement rates as high as 85% even for complex high stakes disputes.

During this webinar in conjunction with Singapore Convention Week, co-organised by the National University Singapore (NUS) Law School, Withers KhattarWong and Sage Mediation, we will review the latest developments in mediation and consider the techniques and strategies mediation professionals may apply to manage adversarial mindsets and foster an atmosphere of creative collaboration.

Speakers:
Professor Joel Lee | Professor, National University of Singapore, Faculty of Law
Mr Aloysius Goh | Chief Executive Officer, SAGE Mediation
Ms Sharon Lin | Partner, Withers KhattarWong
Ms Low Lih Jeng | Senior Consultant & Former District Judge, SAGE Mediation
