About the Event

Join us for a session delivered by Fair Way Resolution to explore the mediation process and to gain some practical advice on this key aspect of conflict resolution.

If you are unaware of what is involved in preparing for mediation, or you are unsure of how a mediation is conducted, then this is a session not to be missed.

Samantha de Coning is Head of Practice at Fair Way Resolution and leads their delivery of dispute resolution services nationally. Samantha is a very experienced conflict resolution practitioner, Fellow of the Arbitrators and Mediation Institute of NZ (AMINZ) and has taught conflict resolution techniques at Massey University and AUT. Samantha is an expert in this field and has developed this session specifically for the Property Institute.

During the session Samantha will walk us through the mediation process and outlining key roles and responsibilities, while sharing some top tips of things to avoid.

Conflict is common in our industry, but it does not have to be a negative thing. Instead, it can be an opportunity for growth, and mediation can be a key part of the process.

Members please note, you will be required to complete a participation & CPD verification question/s before your CPD points will be automatically allocated to your CPD diary.
