APFM Webinar Series
Building the 21st Century Mediation Firm
presented by Jennifer Hawthorne and Justin L. Kelsey
Tuesday, April 28, 2020
9:00 AM – 10:30 AM PDT (12 Noon – 1:30 PM Eastern)
About the Webinar
Building the modern day Mediation Firm requires finding a balance between traditions and innovation. Mediation works because it offers a method of resolving conflict that clients can’t get elsewhere, and delivering those services has to have a personal touch. This webinar will focus on how we make use of modern technology to advance the practice, build a better business model, and stay true to the heart of mediation.
This will include discussion on:
– Integrating Technology with Mediation
– Office policies for a growing Mediation practice
– Systems for a growing Mediation practice
– Keys to adding Mediators to your practice
There will be time for questions at the end of the program.
