What are the different packages?
There are 3 different packages
The first package is Standard Package. It includes all the online material from Module 1 from 6 January 2020 and the rest from 1 March 2020, all the program bonuses and an invitation to the 2 Day Workshop in your area.
The second package is the Advanced Package. It includes everything in the Standard Package, but it also includes an invitation to the 3 Day Retreat for bespoke training with us in Ubud from 1-4 August 2020. This package is for serious students who want the opportunity to fine tune their skills within a few months of their first workshop. Flights & Accommodation not included.
The third package is the Executive Package. It includes everything in the Advanced Package. But it also includes accommodation at our luxury resort in Ubud from 1-4 August 2020. This package is for students who want their accommodation & transport in Ubud taken care of for them. (Strict limit 15 executive packages.)
With each package you can pay upfront now (for an early-bird rate), or by 20 January 2020 for a reduced rate. Or you can pay by payment plan.

Everything about Refunds, Tax Invoices & Receipts
Risk-free 100% refund - no questions asked refund
I offer every candidate a no-questions asked refund until 20 January 2020. So you can change your mind, no questions asked, and get a full refund. But those you do leave will give up their spot & be refused entry into the program again.
Other negotiation/training institutes will not offer this kind of refund at all – it is take it or leave it with them. I am offering some wiggle room here to give you peace of mind and to signal how strongly I believe in the superiority of what I have to offer. I don't expect you’ll find better anywhere else in the world, and if you can then I'd like to know about it so I can re-examine the quality of this program and improve it if necessary.
No Shows Pay the Price
Attendees paying on a payment plan will be refused entry to a workshop /conference and forfeit monies paid unless/until they settle what remains due and owing in cleared funds. Even if you were in hospital. No exceptions. No shows pay the price.
I guarantee the price of the conference, that it will not drop below current prices.
And I guarantee the superiority and original genius combination of content delivered in the program.
Tax Invoices will be provided to applicants who opt to pay by 20 January 2020.
Receipts available upon request.

WHERE WILL THE WORKSHOP BE HELD?
This will be revealed in your itinerary.
This year, I’m shying away from conventional conference venues. We tried it in 2019. It was ok. But it felt a bit stuffy, like most generic conferences, which is not what we want to deliver to our guests.
We want to give guests a transport of experience to match the mental jujitsu that goes on in the program. So, in 2020, we will be using a mix of bespoke venues to give our guest a unique experience. We will still use conference rooms in some places like Saudi Arabia for instance. But in some areas we will be selecting venues that start to push the boundaries like converted loft spaces and barns, luxury mansions, trendy and intimate bars, high-end restaurants, galleries & bookstores, yachts. Venues will be deliberately chosen to prime guests to feel simultaneously at ease, invigorated and astonished by their surroundings so that they are in the best frame of mind to get the most out of the training.
Locations will ONLY be disclosed to confirmed attendees & program administrators & venue operators.
Otherwise, we will not broadcast the locations to the general public as these are private events for invited guests only. We keep this private for the safety & privacy of attendees.
How do I secure a spot?
First, you have to apply and join the waitlist. Then we will tell you if you have made the first cut. Then if you’re not rejected, we will invite you to secure your spot on 31 December 2019 or on 25 January 2020. If you are invited into the program, congratulations. There will be just 2 more steps to go.
Step 1: Get an invitation. Check.
Step 2: Select your package via our teachable page & pay.
Step 3: You will then be redirected to complete an online entry form to fill in your personal details. This will include two important requirements that you MUST complete before we open our doors to you:
1. Provide a copy of your passport. This is a basic entry requirement at the United Nations. And this is a further safety and privacy check to make sure only serious and suitable students make the final cut. We also don’t want any trouble. So if you burn the place down, steal something or stab anyone then we want a name and a face to give the cops. And we’ll have your passport conveniently on file to give the cops if you do anything bad.
2. Agree to a Non-Disclosure Agreement. We’re basically letting you into Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory of Negotiations & Disputes. This is a privilege that only less than .01% of the world’s population will get. So we won’t let you step one foot inside unless you agree not to spoil the program by re-selling our secret recipes beyond our gates. You can use our recipes yourself but try re-distributing them or selling them and we’ll go gangsta on your ass and release the hounds on you. Of all the people in the world to mess with, you don’t want to pick the ones that specialise in hardcore negotiation & dispute resolution. You agree that if you try to sell our intellectual property for a profit that you will pay liquidated damages for $300,000US.
How do we judge who gets invited and who doesn’t?
We will be straight up about this: our selection process IS arbitrary.
As a private program, we can afford to be arbitrary. Our highest value is not equality. Our highest values are excellence and good character.
We do not want bad ideas or bad character to enter our doors. Rather we are offering empowerment to those who pursue personal excellence and who are minded to seek harmony over chaos. So anyone who blatantly flouts bad character (acting “gangsta” or acting “evil” … even if it is in appearances only) will not pass the first phase of our selection process. Having said that, we care nothing for status, title, beauty, ethnicity, none of that: our concern is for character only. We do our own background checks including google searches and social media checks on each applicant. In the first round, we are basically looking to see if there are any obvious reasons to reject you.
Sometimes we do email individuals when we’re not sure about their identity to give them the chance to come. But this is rare.
Once an applicant is invited into the program, they are still expected to honour our values of excellence and good character. We reserve the right to reject ANY applicant at any time for demonstrations of bad character, including without warning. Rejected applicants will not receive a refund. They will just be excluded and potentially asked to leave. So either you come with good character or you will not continue in the program. Again, yes, this is totally arbitrary. But this is how serious we are to keep bad character out from spoiling the gifts and benefits of our program to those who can demonstrate good character and are inclined not to abuse power.
Everything About Language & Special Needs
The program will be delivered in English.
Please let us know if you have special language requirements by 6 January 2020. Email: Concierge@jamienuich.com
We can then explore translation services to accommodate you. But our preference is ideally to deliver the conference in English only – having translators will change the experience and we want as few interruptions as possible.
Please let Ryan know if you have any special needs (eg., disability) or dietary requirements by 6 January 2020. Email: Concierge@jamienuich.com
Can I bring a friend/family with me?
No and yes.
The 2 Day Workshop is by invitation only. Only YOU can attend. If you want your friend, colleague or co-workers to attend the workshop too then get them to apply. If you want to ensure you all attend together, please send us an email or leave a note in your application that you have a group attending.
The 3 Day Retreat is by invitation only BUT you’re welcome to bring a friend/s family to Ubud, Bali with you! We will be there in their peak season which will also a treat for your loved ones too. (You can tell them you will be busy with us from 1:30pm – 4:30pm on day 1 and 9:30am – 4:30pm on days 2, 3 and they will need to entertain themselves - but outside of that, you can enjoy free time with them whenever you want.)
If you book the executive package, then you can bring a friend/family to stay in the room you have booked as part of the package. You will have your own private villa or room. These accommodate 3-4 people. So it is up to you if you want to travel with your own companions - there will be no extra room charge.
Having said that, we have two caveats:
1. Only YOU can attend program workshops during the day. Your partner/family is/are welcome to attend social events with the group, but during the day when we’re working, they’ll need to stay out.
2. No children under 5 please. Maybe at the next retreat infants can come, but this time please no children under 5. Yes, it’s an arbitrary blanket rule for convenience. Challenge us on it if you want and can make a good case.
Can you write me a letter of invitation?
Not unless you’re definitely “IN” ie., you’ve been invited, you’ve paid in full, we’ve sighted your passport, you’ve agreed to the non-disclosure agreement.
No letters unless you’re “IN”. No exceptions.
We receive A LOT of disingenuous requests for letters from individuals who do not follow through with enrollment. Maybe they just want a letter to get into the country so they can get around the visa requirements in those countries. Who knows? But we don’t want the risk and we don’t want to aid any funny business. So unless you “IN” we’re going to just assume you’re asking for a letter for funny business. And we may be inclined to refer you to the local governments.
Can you help me with my visas?
No. That is your job.
Can you help me with flights?
