Master Negotiators: Weekly Lab Meeting with Guest Speaker Scott Tillema

The Master Negotiators Lab is a weekly Zoom meeting that helps you improve (and maintain) your negotiation skills. We run a negotiation simulation every week, which you can either join as a negotiator or as an observer. Lab meetings are open to McGill University students, alumni, and outside visitors.

This Friday, the Master Negotiators Lab has the privilege of hosting Scott Tillema as a guest speaker! Scott is a senior associate with The Negotiations Collective and an active duty law enforcement officer from the Chicago area.

Scott was trained by the FBI in hostage and crisis negotiation, and for many years, worked with one of the largest multi-jurisdictional SWAT teams in the United States.

Here is a rough schedule for our event:

  • 4:00 to 4:20 PM: Shahriar Asadi interviews Scott Tillema
  • 4:20 to 4:50 PM: Negotiation simulation
  • 4:50 to 5:20 PM: Negotiation debrief
  • 5:20 to 5:30 PM: Wrap up and questions from attendance

Please visit the link below to register for the event, either as a participant in our simulation or as an observer.

If you wish to participate in the simulation, the deadline to register is this Wednesday at 11:59PM. I will send you the instructions on Thursday morning. There is no deadline if you wish to be an observer.

Please forward this invitation to people who might be interested in joining us on Friday. In the meantime, you can watch Scott’s TEDx talk on hostage negotiation
