Mediation Profile

I was professor of law at Stellenbosch University until 1997, when I left the university to practice full-time as a labour law and industrial relations specialist. I am currently extraordinary professor at the Graduate School of Business of Stellenbosch University where I teach negotiation, mediation, and aspects of management law on the MBA and executive education programmes, as well as director of the school's Africa Centre for Dispute Settlement. I also teach on the MA and executive negotiation programme at the GSB of the University of Cape Town

I am a director of companies and am involved in private practice in the areas of employment law, employment relations, negotiation, mediation and conflict management generally.

I have been involved in dispute resolution as mediator and arbitrator since the 1980’s.

I have mediated since 1986, having been trained originally by the Independent Mediation Services of SA (IMSSA). My experience was originally limited to labour disputes but since 2003 I have increasingly become involved in civil mediation. I completed an ADR Group mediator course in February 2008 and am accredited with them.

Mostly facilitative, but I prefer to adapt the style to the dispute at hand
