UK Mediation Hosts Barnsley Mediation Showcase

Dr Mike Talbot Blog

Last Thursday, we were pleased to host the first in our series of free mediation showcases.

Held at The Digital Media Centre in Barnsley, and in partnership with Enterprising Barnsley, the event was designed to let attendees see mediation in action, as well as the benefits that it can have for workplace disputes.

Led by myself, the event featured a simulated mediation case from start to finish, as well as a short presentation on the principles and steps of our 7-stage Mediation Model. There was also chance for an informal Q&A session at the end, in which we received many thoughtful and insightful questions from those in attendance!

It was also great to have the opportunity to speak to potential new clients, answering their queries and questions about mediation, whilst also introducing my colleagues at UK Mediation and myself.

Judy Sidebottom, HR Business Consultant for Enterprising Barnsley and organiser of the event, was also pleased with the turnout and feedback from attendees:

“Enterprising Barnsley’s quarterly events offer the opportunity for local businesses to keep up to date with new thinking and meet with managers from other firms facing similar challenges. Feedback from our recent event in collaboration with UK Mediation was outstanding, with attendees particularly enjoying a showcase style of presentation to see mediation in action.”

If you missed our showcase this time around, don’t worry too much – we have four more scheduled between now and the end of the year:

London (morning session) – 28th September
London (afternoon session) – 28th September
Birmingham (morning session) – 30th November
Birmingham (afternoon session) – 30th November

We hope to see you at one of these events!
