KEYNOTE SPEAKER: JOHN FORD

John Ford studied law at the University of Cape Town before moving to Namibia where he practiced from 1988 to 1995. Initially he focused on the representation of survivors of human rights abuses, before focusing on employment and family law after Namibian Independence in 1991. In 1996, Ford received formal mediation training. Since then Ford has successfully mediated hundreds’ of disputes in the workplace. He has also worked with numerous teams on their inability to deal with conflict. He has mediated for the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission and currently specializes in the mediation of informal discrimination disputes in the Federal Sector. Ford has provided training to thousands of employees in the workplace, at all levels, across a wide range of industries. His workshops have focused on mediation, negotiation, facilitation, conflict resolution, emotional intelligence, and customer service. He is the current trainer of the two-day Mastering Workplace Mediation seminar to members of the Northern California HR Association. It is this training that inspired him to write his book, “The HR Managers Guide To Workplace Mediation”. Ford teaches negotiation at UC Hastings School of Law, mediation to graduate business and psychology students at Golden Gate University and organizational collaboration online through Creighton University. Ford is a past president of the Association For Dispute Resolution of Northern California (ADRNC). He was the managing editor of www.mediate.com from 2000 to 2011 and is currently a member of the Association for Conflict Resolution and the ADRNC. While his focus has been on workplace dispute resolution, he has always kept his interest and skills in supporting separating couples alive. He mediates divorces with Liaise Divorce Solutions in downtown San Francisco.
