This brand new, three-hour module is delivered live by interactive presentation and discussion. The course focuses on how to plan and manage a successful negotiation and includes analysis of real-life negotiation scenarios faced by production companies today.
Few of us believe that we are master negotiators but the good news is that there are simple tools, methods and strategies that can help us improve our negotiation skills.
Successful negotiations should be a win-win for both parties, so this course starts by understanding who is typically involved in a client negotiation and what drives them.
Many direct to brand negotiations will involve procurement so this module helps you understand the role of procurement role today and the many boxes they have to tick.
Value is often a big driver for procurement, so this module looks at how to identify and articulate your value in a procurement-friendly way.
The module will also walk you through how to plan a negotiation from start to finish, including assigning roles, what tactics you might keep up your sleeves, how to identify ‘walk away’ points and how to get to the end of the process with a successful outcome.
Course delegates are invited to submit (successful or unsuccessful) negotiation cases as course stimulus. These cases will be de-branded for confidentiality.
