    Families Mean Business

    in Business

    Family businesses are the backbone of many world economies. In the US, family businesses employ nearly 63% of the workforce and contribute 57% of GDP. They are also responsible for nearly 78% of new job creation. It is highly likely that many people listening may be part of a family business or will be working for a family enterprise of some description. There are some good reasons why they contribute so much and that creates special conditions, challenges and characteristics which makes mediation very effective in ensuring the ‘specialness’ is not consumed by disputes. In this program, Amanda Bucklow will discuss what that specialness is, how to identify the early warning signs for emerging problems and what you can do about them, wherever you are in the ‘business’.


    Amanda Bucklow has been in full-time practice as a commercial mediator since 1995 and has specialised in negotiation and conflict resolution for most of her working life. She has worked in three family businesses including her own. Amanda is also an educator and entrepreneur - those two roles mean that she is constantly pushing the boundaries on how mediators are taught their skills so that they are able to practice in the real world as a ‘safe pair of hands’. Her active practice as a mediator feeds the development of her teaching and vice versa.

    TRANSFORM your LIFE w/Coach Tamarra: - How to weather the storm

    in Motivation

    We all have a story. No one’s story is “better” than the other because our lives… our journeys are all different. What’s clear though, is that every breakthrough to a renewed sense of self, of lives awakening, of careers transformed, of lifestyles forever changed, comes from a decision steeped in a “this isn’t what I signed up for” moment.


    In this broadcast, we will discuss the twists and turns of our journeys along with how we each were able to weather the storm. We hope to connect and inspire those who may feel like there’s no way out, that there’s no way someone like me will be able to see my way through.
