Testimonials & Reviews
I have had the privilege of attending several dispute resolution and communication training sessions by Joel, and they have been, without fail, always a fun and enriching experience for me.
As a renowned educator, Joel’s training sessions are always well-planned to deliver a good mix of relevant theory and practical skills. Even months (and years) after attending these sessions, I continue to think back on these lessons, and discover new and better ways to apply the techniques learned both at work and in my personal life. I would not hesitate to recommend Joel as an impactful, effective and entertaining trainer.

It’s a pleasure to write a testimonial for Joel Lee, but a tad difficult too! For someone who is so versatile and talented, one is not sure where to start.
Joel facilitated a program a few years back on Mediation training in which I participated, and I was so glad I did! I experienced him as a teacher par excellence. His passion for the field and his ability to make concepts simple & the learning enjoyable stood out in the program. I am sure his love for teaching, would be well experienced by many of his students at law school. Being a lawyer myself, I can quite visualize how he would take a first-principles approach and simplify complex legal concepts.
His ability to bring humor into facilitation & teaching is special and adds to the learning experience. Joel is also emotionally intelligent and his ability to understand others would be valuable in his mediator’s toolkit. Joel’s expertise in martial arts, NLP etc. come through in other aspects of his work. Another trait is his supportive nature and willingness to help where he can – recently when I had approached him to be a speaker for an International Coaching Conclave on the topic of Conflict coaching, he immediately agreed. Needless to say, the session so very well received by all!
It has been my pleasure to know Joel as a teacher, fellow professional and someone I’d be happy to connect over coffee and a conversation.

Joel has a unique combination of structure, content, and humor in his training. The humor makes it easy to engage and be involved. The top-notch content comes from his many years of experience in practicing and teaching ADR. The structure creates a sense of knowledge boost so the content makes natural sense. This combination in his training help me to immediately be able to use my newly added knowledge.
I had the privilege of undergoing a training course conducted by Joel Lee, and I found it to be a most incredible experience.
Joel brings into the training a very heady combination of deep academic and experiential insights coupled with rich metaphors drawn from his martial arts background and his magic tricks. His explanation of perceptions acting as filters, and how reality mostly differs from how we perceive it, left an indelible impression on my mind, and changed the way I look at the world.
I believe that the training sessions with Joel transformed me, not only as a mediator but also as a human being. There was no question that was left unanswered.
Joel has an amazing way of combining theoretical principles with experiential learning through well-curated simulation exercises and role plays. Not a moment was wasted throughout the training program and Joel’s incredible sense of humour kept the whole session lively and entertaining without compromising on the learning. The finale blew the participants away.
Joel is an exceptional trainer and seminar leader. I’ve had the honour of learning from and subsequently, conducting trainings with him.
Joel’s training is practical, relatable and packed with so much wisdom and perspectives on how people think and behave.
I highly recommend him to corporate leaders tasked with transforming their organisations and expanding the value of their teams; as well as legal professionals who wish to enhance their dispute resolution practice.

Professor Joel Lee is an educator who inspires introspection which leads one towards transformation.
As a beneficiary of his teachings, I am drawn to his approachable and unassuming manner; he never fails to put me at ease while providing ample opportunities to reflect on the insights that he offers.
And he does so by conveying his depth of wisdom with generous doses of pun-filled humour.
Like a finely-honed Swiss Army knife, his myriad approaches and keen intuition allow him to connect with people from various cultural backgrounds.
His expertise and breadth of experiences in training individuals, leaders and organizations also speak of his ability to adapt and contextualize his teachings.
It is for these reasons that I would highly recommend Prof Lee for people-centered skills training, coaching and mentoring.
