About us

 

We believe the world would be a better and more prosperous place if the art and science of negotiation was more widely practised.

Negotiation Partners was born out of frustration. Sadly, most negotiation courses today are run by trainers, lawyers and academics with a focus on knowledge transfer, not business results. As professionals, we decided to create practical, skills-focused programs designed to deliver immediate and tangible business outcomes.

Negotiation Partners is a small team of professional negotiators. We pool our expertise to deliver impactful skills development programs that we can tailor to the specific requirements of our clients. And if more hands-on assistance would be useful, we also have the experience to step-up and assist at the negotiation table.

Matt and his team combine deep academic rigour with highly-actionable practical lessons, examples and interactive case studies. I thoroughly enjoyed the teaching approach and would highly recommend this no-nonsense approach to the complex area of negotiation.
