Neil is a lawyer specialising in ethics, professional standards, governance and risk management. He leads Master Classes on ethical negotiation practices and consults to organisations striving to energise their staff and empower greater performance.
Organisations with a negotiating mindset don't need to rely on rulebooks and manuals to achieve out-performance. These only serve to stifle the performance of high achievers and are ignored or used as a crutch by others. Having contributed substantially to the Australian Solicitors Conduct Rules of the Law Council of Australia, he believes that sound principles will always be more powerful and profitable than any rulebook.
