London South Bank University, Thursday, 15th June 2017

The College of Mediators will celebrate its 21st birthday in 2017. Our annual conference will address issues around mediation coming of age and will also be a celebration of high standards in mediation practice.

This conference will be as relevant to newly trained mediators as the more experienced among us. It will be suitable for all fields of mediation practice – community, family, workplace, civil/commercial, intergenerational, SEND and more. Therefore, we welcome a wide variety of workshop applications on the general theme of mediation coming of age.

Each application should contain the following:

  • Applicant details – name, role, organisation, postal address, landline, mobile and email address
  • Short description for conference publicity (approx. 80 words)
  • Long description (approx. 500 words) – who is it suitable for? what are the objectives and intended outcome? what is the content? what is the programme?
  • Brief biography of presenter (approx. 80 words)

Workshops will last for 60 minutes. Please send Word documents only. Include contact details for two people who may be contacted for additional, independent information about your workshop delivery style.
