Satish kumar sharma

I am a law graduate and qualified company secretary. I have done diploma in Alternative dispute resolution and forty hours certificate course in mediation from Indian law institute ,NewDelhi. I have forty years working experience in banking and corporate world here in india. I wish to make mediation a career for me.

Hi Satish, you should see the YMI sections of the website and perhaps join their Facebook group to access resources helpful to people ‘young’ in their mediation careers.
