Peter Singer

Negotiator, Mediator, Problem Solver

Peter SingerI don’t like seeing people needlessly stuck in deadlock, impasse or stalemate.

To contribute, I build people’s awareness and capabilities in breaking with adversarial negotiating practices and get them to bond, to jointly pursue their best outcomes. I guide people in uncovering ways to create their best outcomes, delivering more value, a sense of harmony, and ultimately, well-­‐being, if not for the world at large, then at best, within the clients’ world.

As a nationally accredited Mediator, Negotiator and a Problem Solver, I have been called in to support and influence negotiations in substantial legal disputes in the County and Magistrates Courts, in commercial disputes, key business deals, Board disputes, business partnership breakdowns, commercial lease deals, workplace conflict, and wherever people or organisations have found themselves at an impasse or facing a critical negotiation.

Through helping assess perspectives and identify underlying needs, people gain insight into how to adapt their interactions towards their best outcome, in challenging, competitive or adversarial situations.
