One of my bigger weak areas in business is that I don't know how to negotiate. I leave money on the table, frequently.
I met Ramon Andino at another Meetup recently where he was demonstrating his new app for negotiation. It was an impressive presentation. I asked him to speak for us on negotiation and he agreed. His app is called Zopaf and is available in the app store for iPhone/iPad.
I am looking for a location for this event.
Here is his bio:
Ramon Jaime Andino
Inventor, creator, author, mobile negotiations expert
Throughout his career, Ramon has used his creativity to fundamentally change how things are done. As an engineer at General Electric his creative approaches to modeling complex systems won him a US Patent [masked]). While at Harvard Business School, he coupled his modeling techniques with cutting edge negotiation approaches taught at HBS to invent the zopaf approach. His zopaf app helps people prepare for their negotiations like never before using techniques previously only available to a select few. Negotiating is one of the most important skills people need to know, yet it is a skill that few have the benefit of learning. Because of this, Ramon enjoys providing free negotiation training to college students and other groups as a way of giving back to the community.
