Webinar ‘Mediation as a sophisticated business tool’ Wednesday 16 September 2020, 15.00-16.00 hrs., online

In order to contain, manage and resolve a business conflict mediation is an effective and efficient alternative to resolve the dispute. Being prepared is key, being flexible is important but grabbing the opportunity at the right time is instrumental in resolving the business dispute in mediation. When is the right time to mediate?

This webinar will explore the benefits of business mediation as a smart business tool. For example, failing to use a mediator to facilitate complex negotiations, such as M&A, might be a missed opportunity for all involved. Using mediation before a conflict escalates can be smart business. The speakers will discuss international business mediation, the pros and cons and how to eliminate the cons and make the pros work for you and your business.
