Michelle Ray-Jones, consultant, and Ploynapa Julagasigorn, associate, have been elected to the board of the Licensing and Executives Society (LES) Thailand, as announced at the LES Thailand annual conference on September 9–10, 2021. Michelle is the new president for the coming term, while Ploynapa is the society’s secretary.
As board members, Michelle and Ploynapa are responsible for guiding LES policies and activities as it seeks to promote knowledge sharing and education on licensing, advocate for licensing issues to governmental and international bodies, and encourage standards and best practices among licensing executives. Their assumption of these leadership roles is also an indication of the growing diversity and gender parity in the licensing industry, which has often been male dominated in the past.
Tilleke & Gibbins was one of the five founding members of LES Thailand when it was established in 2013. Since then the organization has expanded to offer seminars, events, and conferences throughout the year to help licensing professionals stay up to date on important current concerns and trends in licensing activities.
