London Mediators Day is a grass roots mediation conference with a community mediation flavour and a convivial atmosphere.

It provides an opportunity to meet mediators from all sectors of the profession, and to learn about the practical aspects of mediation from mediation and communication experts.

Our keynote speakers will provide insights into some important and controversial issues. Our workshop providers will help you understand some important features and techniques associated with mediation, including aspects of mediation psychology.  There will be two workshop sessions and you can select your workshops of choice from 6 available options.

We will end the day with a panel discussion based on questions from the audience.  This will be followed by a free raffle prize draw and a drinks reception

For non-mediators, London Mediators Day provides an opportunity to understand the benefits and the value of mediation.  You will also gain insights into the skills that professional mediators employ in helping to resolve conflicts quickly, cheaply and effectively.

For practising and trainee mediators, it provides a special learning experience, and attracts six points towards the annual CPD requirements of the College of Mediators.

London Mediators Day is regarded as the best value mediation conference in the UK.  Ticket prices are inclusive of all catering costs.  Tickets for community mediators are subsidised and group discounts are available.

Refreshments are provided on arrival and during morning and afternoon breaks.  A hot lunch is provided, and vegetarian options are available.  We end the day with a drinks reception.

The free raffle prize draw is for mediation books signed by the authors.

We look forward to welcoming you at London Mediators Day
