CEO update | April 2022 | New workshops and masterclasses, and other updates



Dear Members,

I hope everyone is travelling well and keeping safe from both COVID-19 and the recent devastating floods across the east coast of Australia.

It will shortly be that time of year again when we ask you to renew your membership with us. I personally wanted to take this opportunity to say thank you to all members who continue to support Resolution Institute and continue to bring such wealth of diverse knowledge and experience to our community. Resolution Institute is the professional membership organisation for practitioners who want to stand out for their commitment to excellence and I am so grateful to be a part of that and to be able to learn from members every day.

As usual I ask that if you have any feedback or suggestions that would assist us in growing and strengthening Resolution Institute even more, please do get in touch with me or one of the team members.

Speciality Workplace Mediation Pilot Course and other new offerings

Over the coming months we will be launching a number of new workshops and masterclasses.

Firstly, I’m really excited to announce that we are launching our speciality workplace mediation course, with the first session scheduled in Sydney in May. This course will take a deep dive into the challenges that exist in the workplace and how this is explored in mediation and will give workplace mediators a practical framework and tools for managing each stage of the mediation process. This is especially relevant now when we consider the changing nature of work and workplaces, and how this will impact office dynamics.

In addition to this, we are also running our premier Family Law Arbitration course in partnership with the University of Adelaide in October, partnering with Our Family Wizard to run a masterclass for mediators in Melbourne, and have face-to-face NMAS mediation workshops and conflict coaching courses scheduled all across Australia.

We are pleased to be getting back to ‘in person’ learning and events, however we will continue to offer online programmes also so that members and practitioners are able to select the mode of learning that suits them.

I also want to make mention of the FDR online conference hosted by our Aotearoa New Zealand team next week, in partnership with AMINZ. This is shaping up to be a fabulous conference and the programme looks to be both diverse and interesting. I hope those members attending get a lot from it and enjoy the experience; a lot of work has gone into it by the team, especially Laura Collins.

Finally, I wanted to let you know that as we get back into more in-person events, I will be looking to get out again to see members at CPD sessions. I am looking forward to speaking with members after this prolonged period of time, so please do come and join me and say hi!

Until then take care,
