I have over 15 years’ experience in business, negotiation and dispute resolution, specifically within local government, business and family office. I have worked with small businesses, government bodies and Trade Unions, focusing on establishing and maintaining business relationships.
Currently I work at Assertive Group, a company based in Geneva, that specializes in high level negotiation across the world, offering services in the business and political sphere, specifically in business development, deal closing strategies and mediation advisory as well as teaching in a leadership and negotiation academy. I also continue to be instructed as a lawyer, working in high profile family and private crime matters.
I believe that facilitative, transformative and evaluative mediation styles are all useful depending on the given facts and circumstances of the conflict. My strength in problem solving is being positive and proactive in listening and understanding the “bigger picture”. I feel that my style will empower parties to move them from their entrenched positions to consider the objectives and realistic desired outcomes.
“A friend recommended Dominic Geodjenian to me at a time when I was under extreme pressure and desperately needed help. His manner immediately put me at ease as he explained the process at every stage. His air of confidence gave me confidence and I was able to share all my concerns with him which he was responded to with professionalism. His encouraging manner and clear informative explanations made me feel empowered. I was given excellent advice and the whole process was made a lot less stressful.” – Felix Ogbogoh
