Who is Yves Plees?
Yves is a social scientist who holds a special view when it comes to negotiation techniques and change management. He established his knowledge and experience in the academic world and later joined ‘the real world’ when he worked for major companies such as Agfa Gevaert, Group SD Worx, SWIFT and Acerta.
No one is better placed when it comes to detecting and implementing effective influencing tactics and change strategies. In doing so, he uses a unique approach to systems thinking, which aims to transcend emotions in order to increase the likelihood of effective solutions. Yves is an in-demand guest speaker at events about learning, marketing, HR, leadership and innovation.
Everything flowed perfectly. Yves Plees is a very good speaker who took the time to provide a tailor-made presentation. He also responded very well to the debate and the audience.
A very interesting topic, explained by someone who has been part of high-profile negotiations. A good speaker with very effective and practical tips. The negotiation exercise also helped to make everything very clear. So there was a nice mix of hands-on action and theoretical concepts. Will certainly be useful in our day-to-day activities.
