Competition Format

– First Round
– Final Round

First Round:

Participants will receive a mini negotiation scenario. They will then be asked to record a 2-minute video with a negotiation simulation.

Participants will be paired in a random draw.

Participants are required to run their negotiations on Zoom or a similar platform that allows for video recording.

Participants will upload the video to YouTube as an unlisted video and email the link by the submission deadline. The email address will be provided in the instructions upon registration.

If the video is longer than two minutes, the jury will only look at the first two minutes and stop at precisely two minutes.

Final Round

Selected participants will advance to the Final Round.

Participants will be reshuffled into new teams of five people.

The Final Round will take place live on the Zoom platform.

Two teams will have one hour to prepare, and then live negotiations will start.

The negotiations will be followed by a Q&A session with the judges.

Participants shall enter the Zoom meeting waiting room at least 15 minutes before the start of their presentation. The Zoom meeting link or ID will be emailed in advance to participants. If participants do not receive a link at least 24 hours before their presentation, they should inform the organiser via email.


Each participant should use the background slide provided by the organisers and type in his/her full name in Zoom name field.

The Final Round will be open for the general public to observe.
