The Art of Negotiation – How to Get What You Want and Create Win-Win Deals that Lead to Long-Lasting Relationships and Just Networking Event

Sales and Emotional Intelligence Coach Kira Callahan leads us through a dynamic, full-participation 90-minute intensive on the Art of Negotiation!  You’ll be on your feet practicing real-life negotiation situations with each other.  Expect to laugh, sweat and perhaps freak out a little.  You’ll come away with the essential skills you need to get what you want and build great relationships.
Following this training, hear from industry experts on their tips and tricks to negotiations and get the opportunity to ask your burning questions to hotel reps, third party planners, expert negotiators and planners such as yourself. This will be led by media and journalism expert Kathy Barthel who has interviewed everyone from actors, authors and international designers to entrepreneurs and British Royalty!  She will help bring keep the panel fun and interactive – not your average panel presentation, this is our promise.

Just Networking – Gives us the opportunity to connect with colleagues in a relaxed atmosphere. However, this Just Networking event will be a little different than those in the past.

You will have the opportunity to win prizes such as a one-night stay donated by JW Marriott, a one-night stay donated by Holiday Inn Toronto, a Weber portable BBQ donated by Fletcher Wright Associates Inc and many more.
