Introducing: William Ury. Ury is an American author, academic, anthropologist, and negotiation expert.
William Ury is an American author, academic, anthropologist, and negotiation expert. He is co-founder of Harvard’s Program on Negotiation and author of Getting to Yes, a fifteen-million-copy bestseller translated into over thirty-five languages, and many other books on negotiation.
Ury will join this year’s Negotiation Conference in Zurich with a virtual Keynote Speech, where he will talk about “Getting to an Impossible YES”. We live in challenging times when the conflict in business and the world seem ever more difficult to resolve. How can we resolve the conflicts?
In his Keynote Speech, Ury will distill some practical lessons from over four decades of negotiation research and work as an advisor and mediator in negotiations. The negotiations have ranged from boardroom battles to labor strikes and wars around the world. Powerful strategies will be introduced for approaching and transforming seemingly impossible conflicts that you might meet out in the world.
We are happy to have William Ury with us this year, and are looking forward to his Keynote Speech!
