International Negotiation Conference
This year’s topic:
Harnessing the power of relationships, trust and teamwork in negotiation.
31st March – 1st April 2023New livestream tickets available
We all negotiate 2-7 times a day, whether we realise it or not. Nevertheless, it is not very frequent that somebody would have their job title as a “Negotiator” in the Czech Republic, or in Europe. Often, we associate “negotiation” only with crisis situations that police or special services as the FBI deal with.
You can learn from the world’s best negotiators, those who have helped to shape the worlds of business, crisis and diplomacy, how to navigate, manage crisis and de-escalate conflicts. You will gain a first-hand experience in what in today’s negotiations matters the most – building a relationship, trust and the importance of teamwork.
Come and join us at NegotiCON!
If you would like to benefit from the hands-on experience and be instructed by our key speakers, there are VIP tickets which include 4 workshops on the 1st of April and an exclusive Networking with our speakers during complimentary programme at the end of the first day of conference.
