In this episode of the Conflict Specialists Show with Dave Hilton, Dave interviews Neil Denny from Bath, England about:
  • Collaborative Law
  • Teaching People to Engage in Conflict
  • "Conversational Riffs" and other books by Neil, and
  • the "Get Artisan™ Movement."

According to Denny, Get Artisan™ is a skills based model for business and personal growth drawing upon the three artisan traits of Connection; Complexity; and Autonomy.

The goal of the Conflict Specialists Show is to help people, who may only know about this industry from watching Movies or TV Shows, learn more about what “Conflict Specialists” actually do and how we can help others. It’s also an opportunity for current practitioners to learn from a diverse group of experts as they share their unique perspectives and experiences in the field.


Neil Denny is a collaborative lawyer, trainer and author. He is the author of Conversational Riffs and The Collaborative Law Companion. His third book, Grudgeology is currently being written. He is the Director of Learning and Development for allLD Ltd. Neil has dedicated his work to equipping people to understand this thing called conflict, how it leads us to act and how we might be more effective in the face of it. The goal? To transform families, communities and organisations. He is the founder of exhorting mediators to be bolder in embracing the notion of mediation as a craft and of the mediator as artisan within that craft. Neil speaks frequently across England, Wales and North America. He lives in Bath with his wife, two children. And their guinea pigs.
