Peter is Associate Professor and Director of Negotiation Training at University of Nevada Boyd School of Law in Las Vegas, Nevada.  Peter teaches cutting edge negotiation techniques to law students, and also conducts professional speaking and training programs for corporate, government, and non-profit groups and associations such as USA TODAY newspaper, the National Park Service, and the American Marketing Association.  Prior to moving to Las Vegas, Peter taught negotiations and contract law at Washburn School of Law in Topeka, Kansas.  Before that, Peter was adjunct professor and Hewlett Fellow in Conflict Resolution and Legal Problem Solving at Georgetown University Law Center, where he spent three years teaching classes in negotiation and researching how negotiation training can be used to increase emotional intelligence.


Through speeches, trainings and consultations, Peter teaches professionals how to achieve maximum results in any kind of negotiation.  Working with a large variety of corporate, government, and non-profit groups and associations, Peter combines lecture, audience interaction, and “Q&A” to create the most dynamic and compelling presentations possible.

Peter is flexible in meeting client needs: Everything from 45-minute breakfast events, to 90-minute keynote speeches, to trainings lasting several hours or several days.  The “takeaways” for participants include learning how to manage conflict, how to engage in the art and science of negotiation, and how to respond to different personality types, and different negotiation styles.  And Peter's presentations resonate with everyone in the organization.  As one client put it, "We had a great cross section of members at this event and the information was applicable to all attendees regardless of experience level."

Peter has worked with groups of lawyers, doctors, journalists, businesspeople, government managers, and public and non-profit leaders.  Several clients have been women’s groups whose members believe becoming stronger negotiators is imperative to excelling in today’s highly competitive work environment.  Representative clients include the USA TODAY newspaper, the National Park Service, Turner Broadcasting System, Inc., the American Marketing Association, and Women in Cable and Telecommunications.

Peter receives consistent and exceptionally high ratings from audiences and event planners, scoring an average of 4.8 out of 5.0 based on hundreds of respondents from a wide variety of groups and associations.

By combining traditional lectures with simulated negotiation exercises, role plays, and other group exercises, participants can learn from Peter as well as from each other.  The information is powerful, fun to learn, and immediately useful in all aspects of life, both personal and professional.  As one participant noted on his program evaluation form, “Tremendous for me both as an attorney and as an ecclesiastic leader. Not bad information for me as a spouse and father as well.”

Specializing in developing customized presentations and trainings, Peter can work with an organization to quickly pinpoint the kind of negotiations in which members tend to be involved, as well as the types of barriers currently preventing the achievement of favorable agreements.  Specific materials, role plays and exercises can be selected in order to teach and “drill” the competencies and skills most relevant in addressing problems faced by a particular organization or industry.

“The feedback has been extremely positive and your program has been noted as one of our strongest programs this year…We hope to work with you again in the future.”
