WHY CHOOSE THIS COURSE

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

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