National Seminars

Last year marked the 10th anniversary of Independent Mediators. We started our celebrations in London with a drinks reception at Lambeth Palace and we are carrying on the celebrations with a series of national seminars and drinks receptions.

The first seminar/reception took place in Birmingham on 15 November 2017.

The seminar took the format of a panel led open forum. Our aim is to make the seminars as interactive and informative as possible.

A panel of four of the UK’s leading mediators with collectively over 4000 mediations and more than 100 years mediation experience spoke on topics including:

• Consider how mediators have adapted to ensure they help you settle disputes
• Discuss in open forum “Getting more out of Mediation” including topics such as;
• Breaking impasse
• Achieving settlement
• Negotiation tactics
• What do you want from mediators?
• What do mediators want from you?

The Panel:
Michel Kallipetis QC
Jonathan Lloyd-Jones
Andrew Paton
Nicholas Pryor

There was plenty of opportunity for questions and sharing thoughts and very importantly a drink afterwards!

We will be listing dates for seminars planned for 2019 soon so keep an eye on our website for details.
