Effective Negotiating Skills

Date: Wednesday, 7th November 2007

Time: 6.00pm registration for a 6:30pm start finishing at approximately 9.00pm

Location: TBC, Sheffield

Organised by: Connect Yorkshire, sponsored by South Yorkshire Investment Fund

Part of Connect Yorkshire's Investor Readiness Programme building up to the Autumn Investment Forum

The art of negotiation is a skill worth mastering! Designed for young technology companies, this workshop will highlight what makes a "win-win" situation and is sure to be popular with anyone venturing into a deal with an investor, client, supplier or subcontractor.

Lead by our knowledgeable speaker, with the experience of working on hundreds of deals, the workshop will impart advice about the objectives and phases within a negotiation...not to mention the open and hidden agendas! Assembling a negotiating team, knowing an effective approach, and planning workable concessions and alternatives are only part of the process; the workshop will also teach you about bargaining skills, how to listen, question and assert your business.

The Format
Our workshops are designed with an interactive element, to encourage discussion and ideas amongst delegates. During this particular workshop you will be involved in negotiations against other attendees. A buffet with wine will be served on arrival and the workshop itself will be followed by drinks, allowing plenty of time for networking. Should you wish, you can also attend the third workshop in the series ‘Access Accessing Support and Funding’ which will immediately precede the buffet.

Who Should Attend?
The workshops are aimed at technology and knowledge-based businesses with growth ambitions. All workshops are free to anyone wanting to learn about the investment process or who is keen to understand the financial options available to their business.
