The Negotiations Collective is excited to announce Scott Tillema as a Partner with our firm.

Scott is an internationally recognized crisis negotiator, advisor, trainer and keynote speaker. He is known and respected for his experience negotiating in highly charged situations, with high stakes and when the situation requires sensitivity to the human element. Clients, audiences and students alike, find Scott’s teachings, insightful, inspiring and pragmatic.

His experience includes over 20 years of law enforcement experience in the United States. In 2007, he was trained by the FBI in hostage and crisis negotiation and he spent many years working as a negotiator with one of the largest regional SWAT teams in the U.S.

Scott holds a Bachelor's degree in behavioral science, a Master's degree in psychology and has also studied negotiation at the Harvard University Program on Negotiation, at IMD Business School, and he continues to receive training from the world’s top hostage negotiators.

Scott is a prolific trainer within the negotiation field and travels the country and around the world speaking to audiences in both law enforcement and the private sector.

In 2016, he was invited to give a TEDx talk titled “The Secrets of Hostage Negotiators”, which has received over 1 million views. His visibility as a speaker and educator through TEDx and other venues has reached global status.

The team at The Negotiations Collective is proud to celebrate this Partner promotion!

  • Negotiations Collective

On this Giving Tuesday, The Negotiations Collective wants to give, and encourages all of you to do the same.

If you are without work right now, we are pleased to offer a free one-on-one session with any of our three senior negotiation instructors to chat on building stronger negotiation skills or enhancing your conflict resolution skills.

Each of our trainers have agreed to do a coaching session with one individual, in an effort to help them reach their goals and needs going into the holiday season.

If you qualify, please comment below, or feel free to privately message a team member directly for consideration.
