About the Programme

Along with the rest of the world, dispute resolution practitioners have had to quickly adapt to working in a different way as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. Having had to conduct arbitrations and mediations in virtual settings for over a year now, many practitioners agree that virtual hearings have offered a number of benefits over in-person hearing sessions.

As the world moves to a post-COVID new normal, coupled with movements such as the Campaign for Greener Arbitrations in a concerted effort to combat climate change and reduce the carbon footprint of dispute resolution practitioners, the popular view is that virtual hearings are here to stay, even when COVID-related restrictions are eventually removed.

So how do we, as practitioners, pivot and adapt to this new reality? How do you “read the room” when the room is now separated in different tiles across multiple screens? How do you create a trustful and respectful environment that is crucial in a mediation? How do you present in a dynamic and engaging way that ensures you are connected with your audience? When you are no longer able to impose your presence physically, what are the new skills you require in order to present your case effectively?

Hear from our speakers, Mr Chong Yee Leong, Ms Sujatha Bhargavan, Professor Joel Lee and Ms Judy Liu who will provide you with the dos and don’ts of virtual hearing advocacy.

  • Mr Chong Yee Leong is Partner and Co-Head of Allen & Gledhill LLP’s International Arbitration Practice and the Deputy Chairman of the Board of Directors of SIAC. As a seasoned arbitrator, Yee Leong will let you have the arbitrator’s perspective of how practitioners and counsel may be more effective and engaging in a virtual setting.
  • Bhargavan Sujatha is a Senior Consultant with Gavan Law Practice LLC. She has been practising since January 1978 and has been an Advocate & Solicitor for over 43 years and a mediator for over 25 years. She will provide you with the essential tools for Mediation Advocacy to assist you and your clients to mediate successfully over the screen to achieve the best outcome.
  • Professor Joel Lee is Professor (Professional Practice) at the Faculty of Law, National University of Singapore. Professor Lee has a keen interest in utilising Neuro-Linguistic Programming (‘NLP’) in the practice of mediation or negotiation, and will draw on his expertise in providing you insights and techniques in engaging and building rapport through the camera lens.
  • Ms Judy Liu is the Senior Manager at Hays Recruitment, leading the L&D and Talent Management functions for their Asia business. As a certified NLP and PI Practitioner, she conducts workshops and 1-on-1s on leadership and communication. She believes that if we shift our focus from identifying the gaps where the virtual environment ‘falls short’ of face-to-face, and instead turn our attention to recognising the benefits of our new world of work, our presence, authenticity and connection with people can be equally impactful.
