Trained in advertising with Ogilvy’s. I spent 40 years in recruitment marketing. Decided a new challenge was needed and met a friend who suggested I would make a good mediator.
Put myself through the NFM course. Then did the MIAM and legal updates, then the accreditation portfolio and child inclusive mediation. I completed my PPC course late 2019 and became a PPC in 2020.
