Given the degree to which consultants, senior nurses, business managers and other senior staff enter into discussions with implications, it is surprising how few have any personal negotiation training at all. It's crucial, whether discussing a job plan, fighting for resources or simply managing the service in collaborations with others and wider management. In this very comprehensive programme based on time-honoured practice coupled to the latest behavioural understanding, we'll focus firmly on practical skills, as well as typical traps and how to avoid them, with the intention of ensuring that you are super-professional in your negotiations but most importantly very effective and successful. Think what you could achieve with advanced skills in this area...

Pricing Structure

Our Easyjet-style pricing means places start at £195 + VAT for the first 5 places, step to £230 + VAT for the next block and then revert to the standard price of £265 + VAT. It's not time-related, it's 'places available at' and so it pays to book swiftly to secure one of the lower price places.

This means that you get the best price available by booking early but it does require payment at the time of booking, as the place is attached to you and that denies someone else the chance. In the event study leave is declined, refunds are issued according to standard terms & conditions.
