    Steve Mehta, commercial mediator from California, made a wonderful presentation at the August Roundtable Breakfast. I was particularly struck with his "5 in 45" notion. Five things to do in 45 days to help build your ADR practice: Contact 15 people; achieve 7 presences on the web; Be in 5 different physical locations; Publish 2 articles; Make 1 presentation. His emphasis on making a PLAN was so smart.

    I thought his suggestion of putting references on your Web site was terrific.  I have started to request them from parties where I was successful in resolving there disputes,

    Mr. Mehta's presentation was very engaging and very helpful. As a new mediator, starting a mediation practice can be daunting. Mr. Mehta offered sound, practical advice about building a network, relating to clients, and marketing. Everything he presented seemed manageable and possible and I was inspired to apply his wisdom to my own efforts. I have since subscribed to mediation blogs and blogs on other topics that I'm interested in, I have started my own mediation blog, and I have been talking up a storm about my career goals to whomever will listen. In addition to Mr. Mehta's mediation wisdom, what I also learned from the event was that being a mediator in NY is to be a part of a great community of people/professionals.

    I need help to get my private mediation practice off the ground. I will appreciate any assistance to connect with  Mr. Mehta.  Taking one's  mediation practice to the next level is always a challenge.  I was therefore encouraged reading the comments on Mr. Mehta's presentation in August.  I was not at that event, and would appreciate any opportunity to reach him or anyone who can help.
