The Event

Have you ever wondered how a different mediator would tackle a party you found challenging? Or wished you could be a fly on the wall of a mediation? Now’s your chance. We have lined up four highly experienced mediators to meet the same extremely challenging party – Sabrina.

The four mediators will meet Sabrina one after another in four separate first meetings. The situation will be generic and could be a workplace, civil and commercial or a community setting.

Each meeting will be 20 minutes and the mediators won’t be able to see the previous mediators in action. Yes! This is daring.

You will have a chance to see the different styles, techniques and skills in action, as well as have an opportunity to comment and ask questions at a panel after the four sessions.

Meet Sabrina played by Irene Grindell

Sabrina first made an appearance in 2001 at Tower Hamlets Mediation Service during a foundation Community Mediation training and quickly became the alter ego we all hated to love.

Sabrina is quite the character - passive aggressive, resistant, changeable, and shifting from victim to aggressor in the blink of an eye.

Irene Grindell plays Sabrina using all the most challenging behaviours from her most difficult parties that she has worked with over the last 18 years.


Sabrina runs a family business, and is in conflict with her brothers over issues with the local community who have complained about the expansion of the business due to the extra trucks delivering and picking up in the area. Sabrina wants her family to stay out of what she says is “her business” Her brothers have insisted on a mediation.
