Singapore (August 19, 2008) /China Newswire/ — Pacific Conferences is organising a 2-day Advanced Procurement Negotiations Workshop on 20-21 October 2008 and 23-24 October 2008 in Singapore & Hong Kong respectively.
Negotiation is an indispensable tool at the hands of the procurement executive, and is exercised to achieve cost savings, augment supplier performance, enhance quality of procured products and services, and resolve disputes. In today's global economy, bargaining with a few local suppliers and managing business operations with a handshake are things of the past. As each contract is unique, it is extremely crucial for supply management professionals to hone their negotiation skills; securing concessions that are in line with their organisation's business model, and developing proficiencies in constructing win-win agreements for both the buyer and seller.
This 2-day interactive workshop on Advanced Procurement Negotiations is designed for senior-level supply chain professionals who desire to expand their effectiveness and learn new techniques to improve on their Planning, Preparation, and Execution activities related to high-dollar negotiations with suppliers. Consisting of in-depth explorations into supply chain subjects and addressing key supply chain issues inherent in Asia and other areas around the globe, the workshop will empower delegates to leverage on their negotiating competencies to achieve superior results through a combination of innovative instruction, role-playing exercises and "best practice" techniques used by leading organisations.
Mark Trowbridge, Principal of Strategic Procurement Solutions will be leading the 2-day workshop. Mark has worked with past clients such as Apple Computer, Intel Corporation, Adobe Systems, Johnson & Johnson, Colgate-Palmolive, Volvo Trucks, Bristol Myers Squibb, Invensys Controls, LG Electronics, Federal Express & Jones Lang LaSalle.
Endorsed by industry authority in Asia: Procurement and Sourcing Institute of Asia; the event aims to address new techniques to achieve superior results when negotiating with your suppliers.
