HKMC's Experienced Mediators Round-Table Sharing Dinner

Experienced mediators accumulate practical knowledge and tactics to conduct mediation in both professional and effective ways. Newly accredited mediators take time to acquire the “know-how”, and often have many questions and challenges before and during the mediation process. This round-table sharing dinner tries to break this gap and provide opportunities for junior mediators to ask questions in relaxing and enjoyable environment.

There will be one experienced mediator and moderator in each table. While enjoying the dinner, participants are free to ask mediation related questions. Experienced mediators will try to address their issues, share their own methods or practices and have fruitful exchange together.

Enroll now to secure your seat. Take this golden opportunity to learn and talk with experienced mediators!
