What: Improving Negotiation Effectiveness
Where: Harvard Law School

"Studying ways of improving negotiation at Harvard Law School was a rewarding and inspiring experience. The course was conducted by Bruce Patton, a co-founder of the Harvard Negotiation Project and a co-author of Getting to Yes, a seminal text on principled negotiation. Bruce and his staff are world class teachers and I came away from the course with a fresh perspective on the elements at play in any negotiation.

A feature of the course was the opportunity it provided to meet fellow students from an array of professional and cultural backgrounds, many of whom I have kept in touch with since completing the course.

The scholarship was also a welcome opportunity to do some travel in and around the United States. Before arriving in Boston, I had already driven up Highway 1 from LA to San Francisco and enjoyed a week in New York. After the course, the adventure continued to New Orleans and Mexico.”
