Mediators’ Institute of Ireland

Nadja will be the keynote speaker at the annual conference of the Mediators’ Institute of Ireland on the 23rd of October 2015. In light of the significant regulatory activity in the mediation field, she will be speaking on mediation and the art of regulation.

Mediation and the Art of Regulation: Making it REAL

Do you think regulatory topics are boring?

Do you think that mediation law is made by judges and parliaments only?

Do you think that that there is too much regulation of mediation?

Well … think again.

The regulation of mediation is a topic that has the potential to excite and enthuse each and every one of us. Never before in regulatory history have so many people like you and I been  involved in shaping mediation regulatory policy. Whether we like it or not, we cannot not influence how mediation practice is regulated. We are living and breathing regulatory stakeholders.

So what can we do about it then? How can we use our position of ‘regulatory’ influence intelligently and have fun at the same time?

In her keynote address, Nadja Alexander will make the art of regulating mediation REAL — reflective, engaging, artistic and filled with learning.

Audience members will have the opportunity to design their own personal regulatory plan for mediation in Ireland.

She will also be conducting a conflict coaching workshop.
