Editor's Notes

  • The path sign on this slide, indicating only “path” in three different directions, symbolizes that Structured Negotiations is an alternative path to resolve disability access claims.
  • Woman using Barclays talking ATM machine as a result of RNIB Money Talks Campaign. In a global economy, advocacy must be global too.
  • The image on this slide of a young boy (around 7 years old) pushing a hug baseball many times larger than him is meant to symbolize the need to continue maintenance (keep the ball rolling) after an agreement is signed, and after accessibility is put in place.
  • The stone lion at the 42d Street Library in New York City is named Patience, an important quality for a negotiator!
  • The image on this slide is of blind surfer Derek Rabelo paddling on a surfobard with only the ocean and sky in front of him. Derek is a perfect symbol for active patience, an important aspect for a successful Structured Negotiations.
