In last week’s Mad Management on Brexit I ended by offering a “how” to negotiate Brexit this week. I will focus on one element in two key areas: planning and people. When I was at Huthwaite, our research finding that 80 per cent of the success of a negotiation lies in the planning, was confirmed over and over again. Here is just one principle: do not plan sequentially – we will go for this and when we get it we will then go for this, and then this etc.
MAPLE CITY — It’s a grand old barn, plank framed and white walled, with a high cathedral ceiling of dark brown wood. It was the site of a century of important local history. And it's a picturesque element of the state’s western countryside. But it’s been slowly falling apart for years. And unless money is soon found to shore it up, it’s going to be destroyed.

One of the key lessons of negotiation is that both parties must want to negotiate. This will only happen if there is the possibility of mutual benefit. But Brexit can no longer be called a negotiation. It is an exercise in damage limitation, as one of the EU senior negotiators remarked, which will inevitably have elements of negotiation where parties realise they need to keep the ball rolling towards resolution as time runs out.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
