(ii) All information exchanged during this meeting, or any subsequent dispute resolution process, shall be regarded as “without prejudice” communications for the purpose of settlement negotiations and shall be treated as confidential by us and our representatives, unless otherwise required by law.

(d) Mutual Non-Disparagement

(i) We each agree that we shall not publicly or privately disparage each other or each other’s agents, servants or employees, but rather shall act in good faith to refrain from any conduct or communication which might reasonably be expected to interfere with each other’s business and/or personal interests.

You acknowledge that you have done your due diligence with regards to choosing us as your business coach such as having discussions to feel comfortable in our experience and/or spent a satisfactory amount of time reviewing our work or past client feedback. You therefore understand that every client experience is different, and coaching is a subjective service. As such, dissatisfaction with your coaching experience is not a valid reason for termination of this agreement or request of any monies returned.
