Do not miss the most significant event of the year. Influential speakers will debate the topic of negotiation. Never an 'old' topic, negotiation is often regarded as 'a dance with your customer or supplier'. If one party knows the steps and the other doesn't, it's difficult to reach an effective agreement.
During the even, topics such as how to plan before a negotiation, how to ask effective questions, how to 'read' the other's behaviour and how to bargain for the best deal possible will be explored.
Like it or not, we negotiate every day, with our partners, with our children, with our bosses and, even with ourselves. How do you mange your emotions during a negotiation process? Is negotiation style different for men and women? How do you control the other party and balance the power?
At the end of the evening you'll be able to have enough tools in your hand to conduct an effective negotiation. You will be inspired and empowered!
