About Setting Up in Business as a Mediator

Concentrating on the market in England and Wales, but drawing on the experience of mediators who have successfully developed practices in other countries, Setting Up in Business as a Mediator is a practical guide to starting a mediation practice.

Aimed at all types of mediators, it explains the need for a clear plan and what that plan should include. Remembering that a mediation practice is a business, it demonstrates the need to know your product and market in order to generate business, through sales and marketing. It shows you how to build your profile, find a mentor, differentiate yourself from other mediators, and how much to charge.

Whilst the core of Setting up in Business as a Mediator is civil and commercial mediation, it also draws on the experiences of those who have developed mediation practices in other areas such as family and workplace mediation.
