Inevitably, in business or in life, you will need to negotiate a contract. This applies to everything from structured agreements, such as selling your company, to everyday negotiations, like getting your buddy to agree on a travel itinerary. Contract negotiations are only good when they are a “win-win” situation for everyone. Both you and your suppliers should walk away from the table with a satisfactory arrangement. When engaged in contract negotiations of all types and value, your skill as a contract negotiator may not only prevent losses and increase gains for you and your organisation, but could also establish the foundation for long and mutually fruitful relationships.

If you're new at the game, or need a refresher, This course is just right for you. We offer you the key strategies and techniques to enhance your ability to negotiate better contracts and to better negotiate solutions to the inevitable conflict and(often) disputes that can arise in the post-award contracts environment.

How does it Work?

Onsite Training is when we come to you to provide training on your premises or at a location of your choice. Not only will we run the course at a time and venue that suits you, we will also develop a unique programme particular to the developmental, cultural and business requirements of your company.

What's Involved?


Step 1 | After initial discussions, you meet with our training specialist. Here you both work together to design and sculpt a more comprehensive programme outline.

Step 2 | From this outline, a course is designed which addresses your exact needs. Sometimes this involves a completely new course designed from scratch, this depends on your needs.

Step 3 | Once you're happy with everything, the trainer will deliver the course at a venue of your choice on a date that suits.

Step 4 | Once complete, feedback will be gathered from delegates to ascertain the ‘true’ impact. And finally a report will be compiled for you outlining outcomes alongside your stated objectives.
