Organisational learning takes time. Talks by accomplished practitioners, researchers and trainers can be a first step to enhance awareness on negotiation as an art and science, and encourage reflection of practices across agencies working for the greater good.
Presentations and public lectures can be designed around basic negotiation principles, connecting theory to practice in big stake public policy negotiations. Or they can be tailor-made, suited to the particular internal or external negotiation context frequently faced by the audience.
Talks and interview/debate sessions can feature inspiring and high-profile public policy examples from areas such as peace & crisis diplomacy, climate talks, or international trade negotiations. Alternatively, they can feature expert practitioners from negotiations that are not in the public spotlight often, such as discrete negotiations with armed groups on humanitarian access.
