This year, UK Mediation is celebrating its 20th anniversary!
Founded back in May of 1999, UK Mediation’s mission statement has always remained the same: to enable people to better manage conflict in their personal and professional lives.
From its humble beginnings, the company has gone from strength to strength in this regard. Whether it be through our recognised and respected training courses, or the hundreds of cases carried out by our expert mediators, we are pleased to have worked with so many organisations and individuals to meet this objective.
Our CEO, Dr Mike Talbot, had this to say about reaching such a huge milestone:
“In 1999, I realised that there was a need for more positive and collaborative ways of resolving conflict.
And, having worked as a psychotherapist for 15 years, I could see how some techniques from it could be put to great benefit when working with people stuck in conflict, or whose personal or professional relationships are failing.
20 years on, UK Mediation continues to lead the way in using mediation to support people in avoiding the cost, stress, and distraction of unresolved conflict.”
Not to mention, there’s been some great highlights along the way too! Whether it be our international work in Gibraltar, Spain and Sweden, our pioneering work with the likes of Great Ormond Street Hospital and the Northern Ireland Civil Service, or our continued achievements of the ISO 9001 and Investors in People standards, we can definitely say that it’s been a productive two decades!
A big thanks to all of our past, current, and future clients and collaborators – here’s to a happy 20 years and another 20 to come!
