MTI Presents
16th Annual Conflict Resolution and Mediation Conference

The MTI Conflict Resolution and Mediation Conference brings our practitioners and partners closer together. Our theme this year, Anchored in Trust, is fitting in that trust is so pivotal to all that we do:

  • Resolving conflicts
  • Sharing openly and communicating ideas
  • Being effective leaders
  • Relating to our colleagues
  • Interacting with you, our partners and practitioners

We hope you’ll join us as well as other experts in the field from around the world to discuss current trends and techniques in conflict management.

In response to your feedback last year, we have expanded the length of the conference to three days and added a number of sessions which should enhance your experience.
