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.
