I worked with Kirk to run a virtual training session for our international sales team, during a week long corporate event, for a multi-national IT and consulting firm. Kirk's session was the highest rated of the week with the most active audience engagement.

I had the opportunity to follow negotiation training sessions with Kirk. Based on his strong and extended experience, Kirk brings an unusual view/light on the way to perceive/manage/handle/steer a negotiation.

His approach and preparation model allow to better structure any negotiation process, especially the very complex ones of course. Kirk teaches with passion and manage to spread that passion with the complete audience. Thanks for the sessions Kirk.

Kirks session went really well. It was a really interactive, fun but also challenging session. Kirkunderstood us as an organisation and made links during the session so it felt really bespoke. Hedefinitely made an impression and wont be forgotten.

Captivating, Masterful, Beyond Inspiring Attended an extraordinary seminar today on Corporate Negotiation, Listening and Influencing skills used by Hostage Negotiators with guest speaker Kirk Kinnell, former Head of Hostage Negotiation and Armed Policing in Scotland.

His talk was empowering, fascinating with the key insight that “knowledge is not power, the application of knowledge is power” and that “ultimate success in negotiating is closing a deal where both parties benefit”.
