Join the ADR Roundtable as we discuss Beyond Mediation: How to Turn Your 40-Hour Certificate into a Marketable Tool. Our guest speaker will be Anthony Bobo, a protégé of the Center for Alternative Dispute Resolution and Senior Associate at The Joseph Factor Group.

With all the conflict in the world today, there are many opportunities as a conflict resolution professional. But it is sometimes difficult to identify those opportunities and, more importantly, prepare yourself to take advantage of them. This networking event and presentation is for any ADR professional thinking about transitioning into private practice but not sure how to begin. Anthony will offer a candid discussion of how he built a national ADR practice by going beyond mediation.

Join us for this powerful presentation and you will learn how to understand the broad range of opportunities in the field of ADR. You will also learn how to align your personal and professional interests to make an impact in the profession. We will also delve into our role as neutrals in private practice, the impact we have on those with whom we work and how to build better community relations while building a private practice. Come network with like-minded practitioners who are seeking common ground in the ADR community.

Recently Anthony has been a guest columnist with the The Clarion-Ledger in Jackson, Mississippi on the topic of race relations.
