ExpertiseI have been mediating since 2005. Much of my experience comes from mediating in the Ismaili Community through the National Conciliation and Arbitration Board. Whilst I mediated in the Ismaili Community, I undertook all kinds of cases, from high value international disputes, to local workplace and family disputes. I have mediated over 300 cases and I am an extremely patient approachable mediator. I have mediated in many countries and I have a deep understanding of different cultures. It is vital to me that my mediations balance the culture, law and settlement of the dispute to get the best results.
I am the lead trainer at ADR-ODR International. With the role of training hundreds of delegates all over the world. My approach to mediation is constantly improving and my understanding of the nuances of human behavior and conflict makes me one of the best mediators on the circuit.
