LCCI Member Tess Dellagiacoma
I’m motivated to help reduce interpersonal conflict by using my nursing skills and legal knowledge. I became a solicitor because I’m motivated by a sense of social justice. That grew out of my experience as a nurse.
Biggest business goal for next 12 months:
Mediating with more parents who are having trouble working out their parenting arrangements. That’s my core business.
Most known for:
My work in health care and community services. I’ve been a consultant in the health sector since 2001.
I’m a Bartercard member, so I can provide services for trade dollars.
A real challenge for your business:
Competing with government funded mediation services. I provide a much faster and more customised service that is well worth the extra cost. I don’t think people know there’s a big difference between private mediators and the government funded services.
Top business tip:
If you have a dispute, don’t start the court process before you try mediation. It’s so much cheaper, less stressful and you have control over the outcome.
