"One of the key skills necessary for an effective Mediator is the ability to create a relationship of trust with the parties very quickly. If this does not happen, the parties will be very reluctant to give the Mediator information that is confidential, personal or that potentially weakens their case. I have worked together with Claus in some Commercial Mediations, and from there I know that he has the ability to create rapport with people very quickly and so creates this relationship of trust from the start."
