Mediation

Bianca Keys Dispute Resolution Consulting combines legal knowledge and practical experience to provide quality mediation processes. We recognise that no two disputes are the same.

Our approach empowers decision makers and encourages:

  • Constructive dialogue
  • Understanding
  • Informed choice
  • Identification of needs and goals
  • Creative option generation
  • Workable outcomes

Mediation is a process in which two or more parties are assisted to negotiate by an independent third party (the mediator). Mediation may be a stand alone process, or part of an incorporated approach to conflict resolution.

A mediator guides participants through a process to maximise effective dialogue, identify issues and resolve matters to meet the needs and goals of all those involved.

Mediators should ideally be accredited under the National Mediator Accreditation Standards. BKDRC provides mediation by accredited mediators and has international experience across a variety of industries within the private and public sector.
