Better Conversations Bus Tour – 23-28 October 2017

Collaborative Scotland is organising a series of public events and business breakfasts in the north-west of Scotland as part of our Better Conversations Bus Tour.

Collaborative Scotland is led by Scotland’s leading mediator, John Sturrock QC. The co-sponsors of the bus tour include the Highlands and Islands Enterprise, North Coast 500, Crown Estate Scotland, The University of the Highlands and Islands and the North Highland Initiative.

Public meetings offer an opportunity to discuss in a safe space the really important issues that concern us all. The Business Breakfasts encourage local businesses and organisations to explore how to reduce or avoid time-consuming and energy-sapping disputes and breakdowns in relationships , with guidance about how to do so effectively. In the confidential sessions, John Sturrock (and colleagues) will be available to talk about topics of difficulty or contention and to offer advice and guidance about how these might be dealt with in a non-confrontational, constructive and forward-looking way. Meetings with John can be in private or in groups.
