Partners & Members

The Centre partners with organisations that believe in the strategic importance of negotiation and negotiation-related capabilities on an organisational level and in the added value of practice-based research and networking. They should be open to innovative ideas and new insights and willing to share information with like-minded colleagues and could come from almost any function within an organisation, including C-level employees, finance, supply chain, sales, HR and ER. The Negotiation Centre also offers a platform for CEO’s wishing to exchange experiences in negotiations, dispute resolution and social relations.

The Negotiation Centre is currently broadening its scope from Negotiation Intelligence® to also include the new Social Relations and Dispute Resolution Tracks. We welcome new Partners and Members, who want to stay at the forefront of developments and knowledge in these areas, to join us.
