NETWORKING BREAKFAST AND KEYNOTE
THE ART OF THE NEGOTIATION
Speaker: Anthony Huey
The question came out of left field, a question you never expected, and one for which you have no answer. What to do? Unacceptable options are stammering, silence, inappropriate laughter, and just plain verbal panic. What you need to do is think quickly, then take control. This session will give you the techniques and strategies you need to have more effective negotiations and respond to difficult questions while looking for opportunities to say what you want to say. Learning keys include addressing any question; buy yourself think time; develop killer content; reading and engaging your audience; and develop better body language.
9 a.m. - 9:15 a.m.
