Program books


Event Details

SEADOM is making a come back with our 12th SEADOM Congress. Over the past 2 years we have seen sudden and tremendous changes take place over night. COVID-19, the Russia-Ukraine war, military coups and so many more devastating events that brought forth new challenges for musical institutions and all of humanity.

For the 12th SEADOM Congress and building on this year’s feedback, the focus turns to “Managing Change”. For this topic, we will be bringing to Thailand international leaders from various musical institutions over the world to guide us on the leadership methodologies and tactics that they used to manage their institutional responsibilities. The speakers will introduce us to their most recent approaches based on many of the current events that have taken place while also taking into consideration that different environments necessitate different solutions. As such, these sessions will be about training ourselves and our institutions to be prepared to take on the most drastic and unexpected changes of our time; and also to help us better understand these critical factors that help making foolproof decisions that advance our goals when challenges arise.
