SIMC Appreciation Event 2016
16 March 2016
On 16 March 2016, SIMC held its inaugural Appreciation Event at the Regent Hotel Singapore.
The event, which also saw the launch of SIMC’s first Annual Report, saw about 120 members of the mediation and alternative dispute resolution, legal and business communities come together to celebrate SIMC’s results since its official opening in November 2014.
The event also featured a dialogue session with 3 very special guests – Mr Shoban Basak from Northview Secondary School, Ms Deng Yushan from Hwa Chong Institution and Ms Abigail Lew from Yishun Town Secondary School. The 3 special guests were graduates of the Young Peacemakers Conference, which is a conference organised for youth between 13 – 17 years to empower them to be conflict-resolvers. The audience were treated to simple but powerful anecdotes about how mediation skills were applicable to their everyday lives and how they have even played the role of mediator to resolve conflicts in school and at home.
SIMC would like to once again express our gratitude to our partners for heir continued support as we work to grow and develop SIMC even further and promote the use of mediation in cross-border disputes in the year ahead.
