Our monthly blog
Each month, we muse about some aspect of negotiation, gamification or philanthropy and its effect on our work and world. Comments welcome!
If you want to take part in the discussion, you are kindly invited to join our group 'Gamification and Negotiation' on LinkedIn.

Today I am happy to present a guest blogger, my esteemed colleague and friend Ulrich Egger, founder of Egger Philips and Partner in Zürich. We would both welcome feedback on these thoughts.
