Negotiation for Success: Strengthen your business. Increase your profits, with Jonathan Talbott of Talbott International Presentations (TIP)

The only way that you can survive without negotiating is if you live alone, have no neighbours and are completely self-sufficient. Otherwise, negotiation is a necessary life skill.
Indeed, it’s a life skill that everyone could learn how to do better. Negotiations not only make the difference between success and failure in business, they also make the difference between enjoyment and frustration.

In this workshop we’ll discuss tools to reach mutually beneficial solutions, also known as win-win negotiating. Further, we’ll talk about when not to negotiate, how to deal with difficult negotiating partners, and how to avoid emotional blackmail.

We’ll even spend some time learning some verbal and non-verbal persuasion techniques that can make the negotiation process smoother.

Many members of WBII know Jonathan Talbott (TIP) from his pitching and debating workshops and from his work with TEDx speakers. He also gives a small number of practical workshops per year on principled negotiation. This year one of those workshops will be part of our PDW series.

About the speaker:

 Jonathan Talbott has assisted in the creation of thousands of pitches: from investment and fundraising pitches that bring in millions and competition-winning pitches that create new networks, to simple, memorable, one-line pitches designed to attract interest.


Clients include the YouTube sensation Guard from Above (eagles that neutralize drone threats), and the Dutch humanitarian organization Cordaid, as well as startups associated with incubators/accelerators in Athens, The Hague, Eindhoven, Copenhagen, Geneva, Maastricht and Munich.

Jonathan Talbott founded TIP (Talbott International Presentations) in 2012 with the ambition to make the world more interesting, one presentation at a time. Since then his clients have included both small and multinational companies, non-profits, universities, start-ups and political parties.

He increases business people’s confidence and improves their reputations by refining the content, form and delivery of their presentations. He works with his clients to create goal-oriented pitches and presentations which are an intergral part of internal or external marketing campaigns.

Jonathan is based in The Hague and is the head speakers’ coach at TEDx Delft, one of the Netherlands’ largest TEDx organizations. TEDx speakers he has coached have, collectively, achieved more than 1 million views online.
