Filip holds a number of teaching positions around the world. He is adjunct professor in the faculty of Decision Sciences at INSEAD, where he teaches in a range of executive programs on negotiation. In parallel he teaches the MBA subject Negotiation Theory & Practice (884) at Macquarie Graduate School of Management (MGSM) with Dr. Andrew Heys. Filip is also program director for the executive program Developing Effective Negotiation and Influencing Skills (DENS) at Australian Graduate School of Management (AGSM). Additionally Filip is visiting faculty at Indian School of Business (ISB), where he teaches the executive program Mastering the Art of Negotiation and Influence (MANI), and at the Royal Institute for Governance and Strategic Studies (RIGSS) in Bhutan, where he has taught negotiation in the Senior Executive Leadership Program (SELP) and Military Leaders Strategic Studies Seminar (MLS).

Filip has also contributed articles to INSEAD Knowledge, some of which have been republished elsewhere, e.g. in CEO Magazine.

He is presently finishing a second book on crisis and hostage negotiation, with input from co-author Steve York and over a dozen seasoned experts.

Having worked with such a large number of individual experts and negotiation companies, and having attended an unparalleled amount of negotiation and crisis negotiation training himself, Filip is today intimately familiar with the full spectrum of negotiation methodologies taught, promoted and used in the negotiation space. This is a rather unique position, from which he can make informed comments about what works and what doesn't.
