Participant Stories

About Executive Negotiation Workshop: Negotiate with Confidence:

The Executive Negotiation Workshop was extremely practical. It ingrains good negotiating habits in you because you’re literally negotiating nonstop for a week. I'm the chief deal maker for carsales.com, and coming back from the workshop I felt a lot more confident about my abilities to actually execute and negotiate well. We've gotten some really great outcomes, some fantastic deals, because of this program.”
