Are you uncomfortable putting a financial value on your work and talking with clients, vendors and suppliers? Learn tools and tactics to use when negotiating for yourself.

You’ll explore various methods and tactics through interactive exercises and role-plays where you’ll learn what, when, how, and with whom to negotiate. Participants will leave the sessions with the confidence to ask for what they want and the skills to get it. Topics will include becoming familiar with the different types of negotiation methods and when to use them; understanding positions versus interests; setting targets / pricing; making and responding to offers and framing your proposals. You’ll also learn when to walk away and useful negotiating tactics and counter-tactics.
