Hi Greg and all, First, very interesting article that makes one think about what tools we have in the toolbox, the theory behind their use as well as the art of mediation and the flow that sometimes cannot be well-defined.

I have had some issues logging on and been busy with both facilitative and deteminative DR. Dalma has said quite well what I would have. I also agree with Barry and Dale.

I usually only have parties sign my commercial mediation agreements. I was wondering if anyone has the lawyers sign also, as I have heard some do. There may be a difference between VIC and NSW - or other states - regarding confidentiality undertakings. Curious as to what others do. ----------- ...

Hi Julie, Would you have a moment to chat, perhaps on Friday? I was goinh to use Zoom for some and Teams for one person, but it would be good to see how I could use teams alone. Thanks! ------------------------------ Donna Ross International ADR Practitioner Donna Ross Dispute Resolution Melbourne ...
