Singapore Corporate Counsel Association (SCCA) joins Singapore in mourning the passing of the Republic’s Founding Father, Mr Lee Kuan Yew.

Mr Lee was an outstanding lawyer and a distinguished leader, ahead of our times. Indeed, the nation has lost a great counsel and a man of great vision in the eyes of Singapore citizens and world leaders.

We share our deepest condolences with the Prime Minister, Mr Lee Hsien Loong, and his family during this time of personal and national grief.

UPCOMING EVENTS

 
Advanced Negotiation Skills Workshop (Half-day for each session)

Date: 9 and 23 July 2015
Time: 9.00am - 12.30pm
Venue: Intellioffices, Level 3, 146 Robinson Road, Singapore 068909
Speakers: Jonathan Yuen - Partner in the Commercial Litigation Practice group of Rajah & Tann Singapore LLP

Overview of Workshop

The first half-day advanced negotiation skills workshop is designed for participants who are looking to gain extra value, confidence and control in their next negotiation. It will take participants’ existing negotiation skills to a higher level and hone their skills to a sharper edge. Participants should be familiar with the basic concepts of interest-based negotiation, but new participants need not worry as the Workshop will start off with an “introduction” segment to bring everyone up to speed.

The second half-day advanced negotiation skills workshop will show participants how to identify and overcome unethical and hard-ball negotiators and their tactics to achieve winning outcomes, to move from being reactive to being proactive so as to seize the initiative to expand value generation and to reduce undesirable consequences. Participants will also be exposed to the added negotiation complexities of a commercial dispute and of navigating conflicting internal and external interests.

Benefits to participants:

You will learn how to:

  1. Strengthen your understanding and employment of the Harvard interest based negotiation framework
  2. Seize the initiative in negotiations and set your own negotiation tempo
  3. Employ agenda setting as a means of controlling the negotiation
  4. Manage unreasonable expectations through legitimacy and expectation testing
  5. Learn how to use trade-offs to maximise value in the negotiation
  6. Counter bullying, unfair, unethical and hard-ball counter-parties in a negotiation
  7. Reframe issues to maximize your leverage
  8. De-escalate contentious situations
  9. Navigate internal stakeholder interests  

NOTE: You can register for the 1st session or both sessions but not session 2 only.

Cyber Security

Date: Wednesday, 16 September 2015
Time: 12.00 - 2.00pm
Venue: Intellioffices, Level 3, 146 Robinson Road, Singapore 068909
Speaker: Ben Wootliff - General Manager, Control Risks (Hong Kong)

About this Seminar 

How do we protect against the unknown threats? The rise in cybercrime has seen the number of threat actors multiply, and the nature of attacks fragment; what does this mean for the alternatives industry and how can we protect ourselves and our businesses from becoming a victim of a rapidly evolving, amorphous threat?

Sony, JAL, Target: every week a major corporation is in the news as it falls victim to cyber-attacks. But behind the headlines is a complex set of threats, risks and vulnerabilities. With the nature, motivation and capability of attackers constantly changing, general counsels face a dynamic and unpredictable and deeply complex challenge.
