With years of procurement training and experience under their belts, most people still conclude below-average deals. Top procurement achievers achieve their successes not only through strict application of procurement policies and methods, but because they have realised that people are at the heart of procurement. It is people that give better deals to other people - communication is the main contributor to procurement success.

This 2-day workshop focuses on making communication principles practical.

You will learn
