The Art of Negotiation, with author and former corporate lawyer Hilary Gallo
Tonight, Idler editor and author Tom Hodgkinson will conduct a seminar on the art of gentle negotiation. Our teacher will be former corporate lawyer Hilary Gallo, author of The Power of Soft, or “how to get what you want and still be nice”.
The Power of Soft is a different way to approach negotiation – in life and in business. It’s based on Hilary’s experience of solving difficult negotiations in large organisations, mediating small disputes and even working with primary school children. Negotiating without resorting to anger or trickery is an important skill for the bohemian in business, and Hilary will show us how to reach agreements where both parties feel happy. Hilary will be signing copies of his book after the talk. Tom will also be signing copies of his new book Business for Bohemians, the guide to business for creative entrepreneurs.
The event includes a glass of wine arrival.
