Details of Workshop
Session 1: Business Continuity Management – The Way Forward With the recent Japan Earthquake and Philippines Floods, you can never know what to expect in today’s unpredictable world. The speed in which modern business is transacted today means that a disruption of only a few hours can have a catastrophic impact on your organisation’s reputation, revenue, market share and brand equity. Recent statistics also show that the scale of natural disasters striking businesses in 2011 was the costliest on record. The cost to APEC is estimated at US $346.7 billion according to PwC’s 2012 APEC CEO Survey. Having a Business Continuity Management (BCM) Programme in place will
help reduce the impact of major operational disruptions and disasters. It will help organisations quickly return to a state of ‘business as usual’ should any of these events occur.
This presentation provides the approach for your organisation in setting up a robust Business Continuity Management (BCM) programme to mitigate and minimise the effects of a disruptive incident. Session 2: Mediation – As An Effective Dispute Resolution Mechanism When a dispute arises, what dispute mechanisms can a company consider?
What are the differences? What is mediation and how does it measure up to the other methods. This session offers you a look into “Mediation” and the new trends towards resolving disputes. In many situations, mediation has proven to be a much more cost effective method for settling commercial disputes that would otherwise drain companies resources both in time and money when done through lawsuits. The Courts have introduced mediation as a legally binding way of settlement of disputes and a new Mediation Act has come into force. In this session, we examine the
principles of mediation and look at how and when it is appropriate to elect for mediation.
