ABOUT FILIP HRON

Filip is a negotiation consultant, lecturer and author. He has taught students at a dozen universities and graduate business schools, provided negotiation services for several negotiation companies, and collaborated with a range of experts in international, commercial and crisis negotiation. In the process he has coached hundreds of executives across 43 countries and consulted on billion dollar negotiations. He has run nearly 300 programs for over 10 000 individuals from all corners of the world, with participants from senior executive leadership across business, NGOs, academia, government, judiciary, military and law-enforcement.

Filip is adjunct professor in the faculty of Decision Sciences at INSEAD, where he teaches in a range of executive programs on negotiation. In parallel he teaches the MBA subject Negotiation Theory & Practice at Macquarie Graduate School of Management (MGSM) with Dr. Andrew Heys. Filip is also program director for the executive program Developing Effective Negotiation Skills at Australian Graduate School of Management (AGSM). Additionally Filip is visiting faculty at the Royal Institute for Governance and Strategic Studies (RIGSS) in Bhutan, where he has taught negotiation in the Senior Executive Leadership Program (SELP) and crisis negotiation in the the Military Leaders Strategic Studies Seminar (MLS). Every year Filip contributes to Academy Global's Emerging Leaders Program for the Not-For-Profit sector. He also regularly volunteers as a suicide hotline crisis supporter, and he maintains current accreditation in hostage negotiation.

Having worked with such a large number individual experts and negotiation companies, and having attended 150 days of negotiation and crisis negotiation training himself, Filip is today intimately familiar with the full spectrum of negotiation methodologies taught, promoted and used in the negotiation space. This is a rather unique position, from which he can make informed comments about what works and what doesn't.

You can find a snapshot of Filip's insights on negotiation in his first book, Negotiation Evolved. He is presently finishing a second book on crisis and hostage negotiation, with input from over a dozen seasoned experts.
