Dr Lim has over 40 years of extensive experience in the property business, conflict management and dispute resolution, training and consultancy. With his vast experience, he was a valuable member of the inter-agency Committee on Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) which was convened in 1996.

One of the recommendations resulted in the establishment of the CMC.

Apart from that, Dr Lim is also Advisor to the CMU where he plays an active role in training and developing the professional mediation skills of the mediators.

He is also the chief trainer for CMC’s mediation training programmes and workshops. He sits on the Advisory Committee on Community Mediation as a permanent member.
