CHALLENGE

The Singapore Mediation Centre was looking for a concrete way to engage with the business community – one that would raise business-specific issues around conflict and discuss better approaches to resolving these issues.

Activiste worked with the client team to conceptualising and designing an annual event that would be both relevant and insightful to business leaders but be flexible enough to cater to a wide spectrum of future topics.

SOLUTION

Unfolding Conversations was created to be an ongoing signature event for the SMC. Instead of the usual straight-laced business events, we incorporated a thought provoking art exhibition on the effect that perspectives have on outcomes as an important segue into the ensuing panel discussion. 

IMPACT

"Unfolding Conversations 2014: How Perspectives Shape Outcomes" focused on the importance of managing business relationships in today's dynamic commercial landscape. More than 200 business leaders and mediators attended the event on 25 September 2014, and gained insights to using mediation as a strategic conflict management tool.

The client went on to organise the second year’s event to similar success and is currently looking to spin off the event into smaller scale sessions that can be run throughout the year.

 

"Activiste brought experience, expertise and insight to the work they did with us and we feel that we are now better placed to achieve our corporate mission."
