This is the most anticipated negotiation event of the year at Harvard University

We welcome you to the Negotiation & Leadership Conference at Harvard University as this year marks our 6th annual conference at Harvard University.  This event is a collaborative effort by students, alumni and faculty from various Harvard schools and is open to students, alumni, faculty across all Harvard schools as well as other Boston-area schools, members of the local community and, via live-stream, to viewers around the world. The conference has been typically jointly produced by the Harvard Extension Service & Leadership Society, the Harvard Negotiators at Harvard Law School and the Institute for Negotiation Leadership & Diplomacy and enjoys support from the Program on Negotiation at Harvard Law School and the Charles Hamilton Houston Institute at Harvard Law School.

Each year we invite a number of prominent leaders in academia, business, arts & entertainment, government and law to discuss negotiations and leadership topics. This is a life-changing event that will help you move to the next level of competence and open up new pathways to the achievement of personal mastery in the field of negotiations.

In past years we have had more than 50 speakers participate in this event, including: Howard Raiffa, Larry Susskind, Jeswald Salacuse, Michael Wheeler, Dan Shapiro, Eric Green, John Richardson, Chris Voss, Charles Craver, Bruce Hay, Erica Fox, David Hall, Ted Malloch, Josh Freedman, Karen Walch, Leonard Kopelman, Ashleigh Rosette, Stay Heen, Stephen Frenkel, Ed Bartlett, Hlengiwe Mkhize, Scott Solombrino, Sal Perisano, David Tubley, Ted Johnson, Reta Lewis, and many others.

In 2008 and 2011, we received favorable coverage in the Harvard Gazette and Harvard Crimson newspapers where our event was recognized for its groundbreaking and cutting edge programs.  In 2010 and 2011, we were twice featured on the NBC/WHDH channel and as such we were the only event at Harvard DCE to be covered on a local mainstream news channel in Boston.

In 2009, we added additional components to our conference to increase opportunities for training and networking. In 2010, we expanded our one-day event to include more cutting-edge workshops and panels such as the Emerging Leaders panel with young rising stars and next generation leaders such as Divya Narendra, Mark Bao, Adam Stewart, Randall Pinkett, Kwame Jackson, Tina Wells, Nigel Clarke, Brent Green, Ephren Taylor.

Our team is hard at work to bring together an amazing line-up of speakers for our keynotes, panels and workshops in 2012.

We are excited to bring you the 2012 Negotiation & Leadership Conference.

We have an extraordinary program in store for you this year and we invite you to join us!
