Advanced Negotiation Skills

A practical and interactive workshop that explores the most popular most effective advanced negotiation skills, strategies, principles and tactics.


At the heart of this training is the premise that business negotiations, whether you are selling or buying, are inevitable. However, where possible they should be planned for or avoided and their impact minimised. Where this cannot be done, the primary and secondary stages of negotiation should be performed and should serve to reinforce value, agree minor concessions leaving the final negotiation to more senior ‘deal makers’ around one or two key issues.


This course has been run for many different organisations including private and public sector organisations of all sizes
