Core @ 20 in '21

A Celebration of 20 Years:  21 January 2021

On 22 January 2001, Core held its very first event: Communicate to Persuade, which took place in a seminar room in the Royal Society of Edinburgh.  

To celebrate the 20th anniversary of Core's launch, John Sturrock was in the “hot seat” in an online conversation with leading mediator and associate of Core, Liz Rivers, with whom John has been friendly since training as a mediator in 1996.

In a well-attended event, they talked about the many chapters in the Core story - and about John's and mediation's journey over the past 20 years.
