Mediation Institute Membership Update June July 2022

Hi Everyone, 

How has the first half of 2022 treated you? Are you seeing a return to normal yet? Or turbulent as ever?

Has the increasing cost of living helped more people see mediation as a better option than going to court or using expensive lawyer negotiation? 
Or are you still struggling to get your message out and be heard?

So many questions! Make sure you join the Mi Mediator Network to share your insights with us – https://network.mediationinstitute.edu.au

It was such a busy day today with the end of financial year that it was all hands on deck and in our case all paws on deck as well.

Bruce, our dingo lookalike Kelpie, lived up to his working dog reputation!

He’s looking a bit uncomfortable at being told to sit for the photo but was a great help running paperwork between my office an Paul’s as we scrambled to get payments made by end of business for the financial year!
