"We have recommended Tom Murray as a mediator in commercial matters on a number of occasions and have been consistently impressed with the results he achieves.
Mediation is an often overlooked form of resolution for disputes that would otherwise end up in court.
Tom has managed to bring resolution to seemingly intractable disputes without the cost or emotional trauma involved in going to court".
"In deals and disputes, Tom Murray skillfully identifies issues in contention, develops options that expand the pie, and helps clients not leave money on the table.
He has a wonderfully straightforward and approachable manner that enables him to get to the heart of the matter quickly, while still ensuring that people feel heard. He was a standout participant in the Harvard Negotiation Institute and has a bright future in mediation and negotiation."
My name is Emma Boylan. My company is Outside the Box. My business specialises in providing public relations, marketing and social media management and training to various companies. I am also Donegal Junior Chamber International (JCI) President 2014.
Tom recently gave negotiation skills training at one of our JCI Donegal meetings. Everyone thought Tom's presentation was excellent. He was very knowledge, used stories to keep it interesting and really knows how to convey his message well. I learned a lot from Tom's training that I can use everyday dealing with clients and even in everyday life!
I would highly recommend Tom and his negotiation skills training.
This was first class - it’s a whole area that I hadn’t really considered before but I realise now how much better I could be at negotiating- I do it all the time with clients, builders etc. but I can see now that I need to improve a lot.
Comprehensive & delivered very well. No waffle & to the point.
It was excellent, well delivered, interesting, very useful and fun.
"I had a Client who was in urgent need of a mediation intervention between two senior staff members. Workplace relationships between the two individuals were at 'breaking point'.
I referred my Client to Tom Murray in The Mediation Practice. Relations between the two individuals have been transformed and this, in no small way, reflects the competence and professionalism that Tom brought to the process.
I would have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending Tom Murray as a Mediator to any of my Clients. I wish Tom continued success with his Mediation Practice"
Tom combines exceptional intelligence - he won't tell you, but he's in Mensa, - with street wise, in your face negotiation nous. If ever a time arrives in your life where you need an intelligent street wise fighter then Tom's your man.
I have witnessed him at first hand as a participant on our Smácht Programme in Donegal cut straight to the chase on difficult issues and help his colleagues solve massive challenges in their business and lives. I predict he will one day be a global authority on street wise negotiation skills"
"Having had the experience of receiving two days, hands on negotiating training from Tom Murray, we were delighted with the end result of our efforts. Tom was meticulously prepared with insightful, thought provoking case studies and work material. That Tom was obviously very experienced in the field of negotiations was clear from the outset, and added immensely to his ability to help us identify areas of study that were most pertinent to our own requirements. The course design, with the mix of theory, anecdote and role playing, ordered in a manner to assist an accretive process of learning allowed for a seamless flow to the process over the two days. We would have no hesitation in actively encouraging any organisation or business to take advantage of the opportunity offered through Tom’s expertise to allow key staff to develop skill sets in negotiation, that are applicable in all areas of work and life."
“We found the 2 day Negotiation Skills Course to be extremely enjoyable and educational. The course material was very relevant to our business and the practical exercises allowed class members to engage and learn from both the material and from our own business experiences. We would highly recommend this course for business of any size to understand how to negotiate and to get the best outcome for you and your business.”
