Doug Noll presented a one-half day program to approximately 75 attendees at our fourth annual two day international ACMI Conference held in Atlanta in 2010; and, due to the overwhelming approval rating he received from those attendees Doug was asked to return to make a presentation at our fifth annual ACMI Conference held last week in San Diego. Because of his excellent reputation for presenting exciting, intriguing and valuable programs Doug was also asked to present a full-day program for the Arizona Bar Association in September of 2011. Throughout, the ?comment-cards? and verbal comments I received as Chair of these conferences showed what was so obvious to my Co-Chairs and myself, that Doug Noll is a superb speaker and presenter.
Praise For Doug
This was truly the most interesting and valuable seminar I have attended in over 18 years of practice. It introduced me to new concepts and techniques which have already been put to practical use in my sessions. In addition, it brought home the fact that techniques that I had already been using based on experience, instinct, trial and error were not simply aspects of the “art” of negotiation, but also the “science” of negotiation, bringing added structure and consistency in the use of those techniques. Just one question. When and where is the next one?

Just a short note to thank you for an awe-inspiring presentation last week. You had everyone’s rapt attention, which is really saying something on a Friday afternoon. Personally, your remarks reminded me of the compassion, joy and adventure that are involved in mediation. You really touched that spark within, which is probably the first time I’ve experienced that since I began in mediation over 20 years ago.
