Our Mediation Champions are looking out for you

Our Champions are all business people who play an active and pioneering role in the promotion of mediation as the leading edge of dispute resolution.

They are proactive in saving families and other business people who face dispute, from embarking on a legalistic process that focusses only on the legal strength of their position and on winning in court.

They understand the flexibility and retention of personal control that mediation allows, and its relentless concentration on finding a lasting and fair resolution.

These Champions are proactive in raising awareness in: family members; friends; and business associates of the potency of mediation as a means of resolving dispute, and as a choice that minimises the expense, emotion, time and risk that are typically part of litigation.

They know that this is just another business decision, and that the wise choice is mediation.
