Negotiation Skills

One day Masterclass

9th June 2021


Learn how to plan and prepare your negotiation position

How to deal with a deadlocked situation

Understand the value of body language (and more)




The aim of a successful negotiation is to end with benefits for both sides. However, not all negotiations happen that way and quite a few could end up not coming out the way you wanted or envisaged, or possibly ending up with a bad deal, and in the worst-case scenario, a failed negotiation agreement can make the situation worse and lead to even greater conflict.


After this one-day course, you will leave with the skills and confidence to enter into a negotiation situation with renewed confidence and knowledge. You also receive our full tutorial pack which will allow you to refer back to your course content after the course is finished, enabling you to continue to access key points and refresher topics as you need them. And you receive five structured CPD points towards your professional education requirements.
