What participants had to say about the course and the facilitator
Thanks for an enjoyable and useful workshop in Negotiating Skills. It helped me develop confidence in planning for negotiations, and working through complex conversations to arrive at a positive outcome. And it was a great bunch of people to spend time with, too! A very engaging course with great practice examples and role plays. The course facilitator was excellent.
I have enjoyed the course as a great opportunity to improve my work technique and approach to people with negotiating. This is an excellent course to help achieve better negotiated outcomes.
I’m really happy with the course. I think it is very useful for all types of situations. Really good facilitator as well.
Will be able to use the framework for negotiation at work and in life.
Friendly and open discussions.
Course exercises were good with interactivity and sharing with real-life examples of others.
Christine presented the course in a very engaging, informative and fun manner. Her style kept the group thinking, challenged and full of enthusiasm. A very worthwhile experience.

I loved the opportunity to share our negotiation challenges and getting together to discuss with people of very varied backgrounds and jobs. The discussion was valuable and I leave with lots of food for thought on how to apply the learnings in my role.
