Negotiation Day ay Uni Potsdam

We had a wonderful day hosted by Universitaet Potsdam.  It was the second annual Negotiation & Culture Experience and it was a huge success.  We headed to Potsdam on the S1 Train and meet our counterparts at the Uni for a day of interaction.  We were greeted by Dr. Uta Herbst and her team (Melanie, Jonas and Timo) and the day started with a lecture on Culture and Negotiation and then the students were split up into buyers or sellers and the did a "Speed Negotiation" experience where they negotiated three consecutive deals with shorts periods inbetween in order to prepare.  The day finished with a group dinner and a great group dinner at Ulf's Bistro on the campus.
