Given your field of work and extensive expertise in conflict resolution, I would like to bring your attention to the upcoming Asia Pacific Mediation Forum (APMF) not-for-profit event; "The Asia Pacific Mediation Leadership Summit - From Talk To Action", taking place in Bangkok 2 - 4 December 2011, which brings together mediation and ADR specialists from various fields; including family mediation, commercial and workplace mediation, court-annexed mediation, conflict and community mediation, climate change and disaster response mediation and various cross-sectional themes, like for example human rights, cross-cultural dynamics and women in mediation.

Do have a look at my profile and the Mediation Summit's link (www.mediation-leadership.com) and feel free to email me or send me a message when having any questions regarding participation.

Kind regards,

Dennis Bours
