What other people say:

“I really enjoyed the course, I think that the facilitator made some good points, and probably reminded me personally to remember that a fair negotiation is reflected in both parties getting what they need and by keeping it a little humorous at times, the facilitator certainly got good interaction. Certainly, a course that I think would add value to a contractor’s skill set particularly if they are also understanding and improving their costing analysis.”
