Presentation, discussion and questions

Business people and their lawyers are facing business conflicts and disputes every day. HR professionals deal with conflict challenges in the workplace every day. Any business and organization success depends on the way and speed of solving conflicts and disputes. There is a much better, different and more efficient way of solving all kind of disagreements, early and fast – mediation. Mediation is not just a method of resolving disputes, but the way of living and making business. The primary business purpose is to do business, not disputing.  So, avoidance of litigation as the first option has become synonymous for reasonable business affairs.

The only success in any conflict/dispute is not the victory, but the solution – the end of the fight. Mediation is the best tool to manage early conflicts and disputes and the risks coming from them. It makes business or workplace conflicts and disputes predictive. 

This lecture is an excellent opportunity to learn from experts from the country which has invented mediation and to find the right answer on the question: "Why business needs a different approach in resolving conflicts and disputes?"


Join us and get the opportunity to learn from the first hand from our American friends and experts - all you want to know about this wonderful subject.
