‘Thank you very much for running the excellent Civil and Commercial Mediator Training programme via Zoom last week. I thoroughly enjoyed the programme and was pleasantly surprised by how well the Zoom videoconference format worked for the programme.
I have used videoconference facilities for business meetings for many years, but I was sceptical about how it would work for a training course. The Zoom platform worked brilliantly, especially the different meeting room facility. I learned a huge amount from your personal experiences of mediation and enjoyed the structured approach to conducting a mediation process. The interaction with the other delegates was really good and we were able to build a good rapport with each other during the programme. I would go as far as to say that the learning experience was enhanced by being able to attend the training from the comfort of my home and not having to battle with the commute to a venue each day. I felt fresh at the start of every day and in a better place to absorb the content and engage in the exercises.
The skills I have developed on the training will be incredibly useful in my business consultancy and executive coaching work, as well as equipping me to facilitate mediations. They will also be a huge asset as I work towards becoming a qualified solicitor.
I look forward to keeping in touch with you and my fellow delegates as I put these skills into practice and develop part of my portfolio of work as a mediator.’

'I just wanted to say thank you for a great week. I thoroughly enjoyed the course and gained much.

As you know I was sceptical about attending the course over Zoom but it worked brilliantly, in fact it was better than face to face - it was an effective way to attend the course for me. I also don’t feel there was any loss of contact, you could still feel the emotion through the exercises.'

John – April 2020

'The Clear ADR Civil and Commercial Mediation Training programme provided great insight into and practical experience of the mediation process. The theoretical, professional and ethical underpinnings of mediation were expertly covered and the role plays gave great opportunities to put the theory into practice and to hone your mediation skills. The course leader (Lois, if you're not too immodest) has fantastic real world experience and was able to expertly guide us through the role plays, where needed. A fascinatingly diverse cohort added very positively to the overall programme.'
