Gottleben was founded in 2000 by Kaare Thomsen. At first, our customers were based mainly in Scandinavia. But over the years, our clientele has become international. One reason for this is that the fundamentals of negotiation are the same all over the world; but also that our Scandinavian approach makes sense. The methods developed by Kaare Thomsen, based on research in psychology and rhetoric, have proven to be extremely effective no matter where they are used.
