‘Risk managing’ your practice…tips and strategies

As your practice in dispute resolution continues to grow so does the possibility of complaints being lodged by parties, who are also consumers of a service.

This webinar will look at what it means to ‘risk manage’ your practice and how to put processes and strategies in place if a complaint does arise. Linda will share her thoughts and experiences about:

  • How to ensure a clear mutual understanding between participants and practitioner about the process, how it works and what is offered
  • Best practice when responding, in the first instance, when a complaint is raised with you

This webinar is relevant to mediators and dispute resolution practitioners.
