The main focus of the conference is 90 minute workshop sessions to allow greater topic depth. Workshops are focused on specific skills or learning that you can incorporate into the facilitation/mediation/dispute resolution practice work you do. Workshop presenters have presentation and training skills to ensure the workshop sessions deliver both content you can use in your practice and interactive learning.
