It not only allows you to get more for your business, it also allows you to save more on expenses and, most importantly, strengthen key relationships with internal stakeholders and clients.

This interactive presentation will be as fun as it is informative. You will not only discover the keys to negotiation and persuasion, you will also have the opportunity to practice your skills in a live negotiation simulation.
