IAS Advisory co-founding partner Ms Siripen Kulworakulpitak was delighted to join the committee for selecting teams at the recent National Mediation Competition 2024. The competition was held over three days from 23-25th January 2024 at the Thailand Arbitration Center (THAC) in Bangkok.

Now in its sixth year, the event brings together Thailand’s next generation of mediators and negotiators and aims to encourage greater innovation, creativity and leadership. Using simulations of commercial disputes, participants get to put theory into practice and test strategies and tactics in a fun but competitive environment.

The event offers a great opportunity for 2nd, 3rd and 4th year degree students to participate in a mediation from start to finish. They gain practical experience of the whole process, from ensuring equal participation, to gathering viewpoints, to determining interests, from assessing possibilities, to creating win-win options, to finally outlining an effective compromise agreement.

Participants also get a chance to showcase their skills, connect with peers, and discuss the very latest mediation and negotiation techniques.

It was a genuine pleasure to join and to see Thailand’s next generation of mediators and negotiators. Thank you to THAC for the invitation and to all participants for making this year’s event so memorable!
