In a dispute? With no time to think about solving it? And no money to sort it? Come and ask a panel of mediators how to bridge the dispute resolution gap.

Two panels, each with three expert mediators, will explore mediation as a practical and user-friendly alternative to litigating your dispute in court or tribunal.

Speakers will explore the mediation process across a variety of disputes, including workplace, business and disputes in the community.

The panels, chaired by Helen Curtis, a mediator and barrister at Garden Court Mediation, will share their insight and experiences, answer your questions and listen to your perspective on resolving disputes.

The panellists are all mediators with experience in different fields and all look forward to meeting you.
