A Quick Note From Kwame
I'm a professor of law at The Ohio State Moritz College of Law (the second ranked dispute resolution program in the country) and I've traveled the country teaching professionals around the world how to negotiate and manage conflict more effectively. With this course, I've taken the best of that coursework and put it into this power packed online course.
At the end of the program you will have a powerful set of strategic and tactical tools that you can use in your next negotiation and, more importantly, you will have the confidence you need to use them in order to get more of what you want without the fear of losing the relationship.
After seeing Kwame present on negotiations and dispute resolution and hearing his podcast, Negotiate Anything, Kwame guest lectured for my MBA negotiation class and did a great job. He has a deep knowledge of and enthusiasm for negotiation and dispute resolution theory and a very engaging, interactive presentation style. I highly recommend Kwame as a presenter and negotiation expert.

What impresses me about Kwame: his ability to take emotionally charged topics like negotiation and make them approachable and maybe even fun! I’ve been delighted to have him as a guest on The Introvert Entrepreneur Podcast twice, as well as a speaker for my Virtual Networking for Introverts. In all three instances, he offered valuable information in a relaxed, good-natured manner that made learning easy. I appreciated how he engaged the audience and made them active participants in the conversation. His sense of humor and smarts combine to make every interaction a pleasure. And his enthusiasm for negotiation and persuasion is contagious! Highly recommend him as a speaker.
