The Essence of Marketing: Practical Ideas for Mediators

With John Ford

It’s a tragic myth that because you are an exceptional mediator, clients will find you and want to use your services. Over the years John Ford has met many talented mediators who just couldn’t make it financially even though there are no shortages of conflict in the world.

If you are motivated to be a mediator, and want to earn a decent living, then participate in John’s upcoming workshop.

In addition to reviewing the nuts and bolts of brick & mortar marketing, you’ll explore online marketing with John, starting with the particular importance of email.

John will share the secrets of his success as a mediator in a way that empowers you to take focused action for yourself.

  • From John’s mediation clinic, you’ll be able to:
  • Define the purpose of marketing
  • Articulate an approach to marketing that works
  • Develop your own marketing collateral
  • Discover how to integrate email, the web and social media to support your marketing
  • Take your mediation business to the next level

Registration, Payment & Logistics

You can preregister and prepay for mediation clinics through the links in the 2018 CALENDAR above. 

Please be advised: We prefer that people preregister for our clinics.  While we don’t discourage walk-ins, all clinic participants are required to check in at the building security desk, and if your name is NOT on the registration roster, it could result in a delay or possibly inability to gain entry.

Though it rarely happens, we reserve the right to cancel a clinic. Should we cancel, registrants will receive a full refund. We also reserve the right to substitute trainers or presenters.  All other cancellations will be treated pursuant to the Refunds and Transfer Fees policy described below.

Refunds & Transfer Fees
If you cancel more than 24 hours before the clinic start time, there is a $7.50 cancellation fee. This fee will be waived one time if registration is transferred to a subsequent clinic that begins within twelve months of the training start date.  No refunds for cancellations 24 hours or less before the clinic start time.

All mediation clinics are held at:  JAMS, 2 Embarcadero Center, 15th Floor, San Francisco, 6-8 PM. [MAP]
