Meet Chris Voss

Christopher "Chris" Voss is a former FBI hostage negotiator. As an FBI hostage negotiator, Chris Voss persuaded terrorists, bank robbers, and kidnappers to see things his way. Now he’s teaching you his field-tested strategies to help you in everyday negotiations, whether you’re aiming to improve your salary, the service you receive, or your relationships. Get stronger communication skills, game-changing insights into human nature, and more of what you want out of life.

Voss was a member of the New York City Joint Terrorism Task Force from 1986 to 2000. He was involved in monitoring the New York City landmark bomb plot after spending three years investigating the 1993 World Trade Center bombing. He was the "co-case agent" during the investigation of the 1996 TWA Flight 800 explosion. In 1992, he received hostage negotiation training at the FBI Academy. He spent 24 years working in the FBI Crisis Negotiation Unit and was the FBI's chief international hostage and kidnapping negotiator from 2003 to 2007. In 2006, he was the lead negotiator on the Jill Carroll case in Iraq as well as the Steve Centanni case in the Gaza Strip. Voss supervised additional hostage cases in the Philippines, Colombia and Haiti. After working on more than 150 international hostage cases, he retired from the FBI in 2007. Currently, he is CEO of The Black Swan Group Ltd and Adjunct Professor at Georgetown University's McDonough School of Business and a lecturer at the Marshall School of Business at University of Southern California.

Participant Profile

Negotiation Dynamics delivers great strategic and operational leverage to any executive who needs to interact with others to get results. 

Participants include executives with many different roles, including:

  • Board members
  • C-Suite
  • Executives involved in mergers, acquisitions or joint-venture negotiations
  • Project Managers
  • Human resources managers
  • Entrepreneurs
  • Sales and procurement managers
  • Audit and compliance managers
  • Key-account managers
  • Barristers and lawyers

While the programme is not restricted to managers in specific functions (however the above list would most benefit from it). Prior training in negotiating skills is useful but not essential.

What You'll Learn

All of us have experience negotiating. Persuasion and influence are challenging and complex problems that we deal with every day. We buy and sell. We manage workers and work for managers. We deal with friends, family, colleagues, merchants, organisations and institutions all the time. Yet building agreement among people who often do not share the same interests, perceptions and values is challenging and sometimes elusive. What are some of the reasons for falling short of success – and how can we address them?

The Negotiation Dynamics live virtual workshop examines stumbling blocks that cause negotiation to fail and what can be done about them. At the same time, it teaches you how to become a better, more effective negotiator, able to build sustainable, relationship-enhancing deals. 

In one day workshop, in a challenging, action-orientated international environment, you will develop your personal negotiation style, learning new skills and strategies and, above all, getting the practice you need to be confident and effective.
