Mock Mediation

an opportunity to see mediation in action

These practical Mock Mediation workshops demonstrate how delegates can achieve quick and cost-effective resolution of conflicts in the workplace.

Do you know what happens in mediation, why it works and how managers and HR professionals can support its use effectively? If you’re unsure of the effectiveness and benefits of mediation, this event is for you.

With an ‘acted demonstration’ of a typical workplace conflict, witness for yourself how mediation works and see how parties reach a conclusion with the help of an experienced mediator.

This event includes a light lunch.
