Master Class: Getting to Yes with Yourself

Date: 14 May 2018
Time: TBC
Venue: The Hub, 348-350 Castlehill, Edinburgh EH1 2NE
CPD: Approx 6 hours  

One of the highlights in Core’s history was the visit of the leading writer and practitioner in our field, William Ury, in 2009. Few who attended his Master Class in The Hub on Castle Hill will forget that day. 

We are thrilled that William is coming back to Scotland next May. William will be the keynote speaker at the conference of the International Academy of Mediators in Edinburgh on 12 May, speaking in the Chamber of the Scottish Parliament. The conference itself will attract nearly 200 participants from around the world. 

William Ury will present at another full day event on Monday 14 May, again at The Hub. Registration details below.
