CEDR Ireland Exchange Forum: Mediator Speed Dating - meeting, mingling, informing
Dublin, 4th July 2012, 4pm-6.30pm
"This is peer-to-peer learning taken to the next level!"
Due to the success of this event which has been run in London, Hong Kong and South Africa, we will give Exchange participants in Ireland the chance to have the conversations they have always wanted, with large numbers of mediators, in a special 'speed dating' format. All attendees will be able to have a number of one-to-one conversations with other Exchange participants, and will move around the room, to encourage as many conversations as possible.
Many may want to choose their own subjects to discuss but we have come up with four questions which we think might make an interesting topics for the 'speed dates':
1) Why did you become a mediator? 2) What is the best way to work with lawyers in a mediation? 3) What classifies as a good result for a client in a mediation? 4) When is and when isn't mediation good value for money?
As with most speed dating events there will be score cards for participants to say who they would like to chat to again in more depth. Unlike other speed dating evenings delegates will be asked to complete a form to detail what they have learned from speaking to other mediators on these topics.
Please come along for a mediation event like no other!
If you would like to attend this forum please contact Nicola White at firstname.lastname@example.org

Language and Cultural Aspects of International Mediation Conference
15th (afternoon), 16th and 17th (morning) August 2012
“Mediators must have a good grasp of the cultural differences that are at play, how language is used and the impact on the other party when that language is not their mother tongue”
I would like to bring to your attention a two-day event on the 15th (afternoon), 16th and 17th (morning) August entitled ‘Language and Cultural Aspects of International Mediation’. This event witnesses the first collaborative efforts between professionals and academics under the innovative theme. The speakers include professional mediators from the Centre for Effective Dispute Resolution (CEDR) and academics specialising in sociolinguistics, translation, intercultural communication and conflict management studies. They will present and debate how professional knowledge and academic research into those areas can contribute effectively to the understanding of language use and inter/cross-cultural differences in mediation and conflict management and their representation in translation/interpreting.
We very much look forward to seeing you in August.
Mediator Skills Training - 17th International Summer School
Mediator skills training leading to assessment for CEDR Mediator Accreditation
20th - 25th August 2012
The Oitavos Hotel, Lisbon, Portugal
“An amazing experience which provides you with new life skills.”
CEDR's International Summer School offers an exceptional combination of venue and content, involving five days of training, plus extra coaching, spread over six days to allow delegates some time to enjoy the stunning location and to reflect on the content and experiential learning of an intense course. The location provides an excellent environment for networking with other delegates and making the most of having experienced mediator-trainers at your disposal, at trainer to delegate ratio of 1:3. Getting away from the office also encourages delegates to turn their full concentration to a course which demands 150% attention.
CEDR's International Summer School provides a unique opportunity to explore the potential for mediating commercial disputes, and those achieving CEDR Mediator Accreditation will be ideally placed to play a key role in the development of this emerging field.
