Negotiation: The Art of the Deal

Thursday September 8th, 2016

Sandman Hotel
180 West Georgia Street, Vancouver

Presented by Michael Walsh, President of Kaizen Consulting

Negotiations can be tough. There is competitor pressure and customers wanting more for less. While there is no magic bullet, there are some things that you can do. And quite often, you can do more than you think.

In this session, we will identify the things that stop people from getting the best deals for them, and look at some of the specific things you can do to make the negotiations easier and more profitable.

The presentation will be of particular interest to business owners and those thinking of becoming a business owner.

So come with questions, as there will be a Q & A period also.

Participants will receive the pragmatic tools to assist them in improving effectiveness in business negotiation and in overall human interactions by:

  1. Learning the importance of preparing to negotiate.
  2. Understanding how to respect relationships in even the most difficult of negotiations.
  3. Using the elements of effective negotiation to arrive at a win-win scenario every time.
  4. Learning the 25 tips, tricks & traps in negotiations.
