Originally from London, Ilan has worked with a wide range of organisations in the UK, USA, the Middle East and Asia. He enjoys working with people from diverse cultural backgrounds and focuses on understanding his clients’ perspectives and needs before establishing an open and welcoming environment in which they are able to communicate effectively and transform their relationships for the better. As well as working as an independent mediator, Ilan is an accomplished and engaging conflict resolution skills trainer and coach.
Ilan is driven by his mission to employ the fundamental principles of conflict resolution–deep listening, mutual understanding and effective communication–to help people collaboratively develop solutions to their problems, with the broader aim of fostering more productive professional relationships, organisations and communities at large.
Prior to starting his career as a conflict resolution practitioner, Ilan worked in financial services in London and later for several high-profile international organisations in China. Ilan brings over a decade of diverse international experience, a rich knowledge of Middle Eastern and East Asian culture, and an advanced proficiency in Mandarin to his work as a Resolution Consultant at the TCM Group.
In his spare time, he enjoys hiking, running, cycling, and both listening and dancing to an eclectic mix of musical genres.
