ONLINE: Purchasing Series – Negotiations Preparations (2 Day)

About this event

Negotiations Preparation

The true art and science of a negotiation does not begin when the buyer or seller arrives at the table – that is the easy part. A negotiation is won during the preparation and discovery phase of the process. This is where you realize what the counterpart wants, needs or has to have for success. Having the confidence of being able to walk in and to know success is eminent and satisfaction can be secured is a very persuasive and powerful tool.

The session explores the feature of both the art of a negotiation and the science behind every successful negotiation. Also, being in command at the table is a strength every person should convey and a tool to impress higher levels of management with your influence.
