24th World Forum of Mediation Centres Singapore - Australia punches above its weight again!
The regular UIA mediation events are always valuable. Great to be attending a program which included important presentations from our Australian cohort:
- Emma-May Litchfield and Danielle Hutchinson of Resolution Resources sharing insights from the Global Pound Conference Series 2016-17
- Alan Limbury and Justice Fleur Kingham (President of the Land Court of Queensland) talking about 'The Power of Mediation in Project Disputes'
- Richelle Nicols and Nathan Polito of MODRON showcasing their groundbreaking ODR platform
- and although she is based in Singapore now I must also include Professor Nadja Alexander (Academic Director of SIDRA and Professor at Singapore Management University) who has significant Australian history and who co-sponsored the program and moderated a number of the sessions
Other notable attendees included Professor Rachael Field of Bond University and Sydney Barrister Peter Dwyer.
Amongst the 55 attendees the group movement from Australia certainly made its presence felt. I was very proud to be part of it.

Many congratulations to the sensational students from UNSW. Generous-spirited and collaborative. Wonderful mediation skills. The skills they demonstrated in their semi-final filled me with pride - such a privilege to be their coach!
