Despite employing well-trained sales teams, purchasers find it difficult to negotiate with their respective suppliers. Lack of advanced negotiation skills foils procurement’s ability to negotiate the best deal. Procurement is a profit center. Every dollar of cost savings achieved through better negotiation skills has a positive and direct impact on the bottom line.

This session by expert speaker Charles M. Intrieri will provide procurement professionals a powerful set of strategic and tactical negotiation tools. Charles will show how you can predict the supplier’s next move, think like a supplier, negotiate effectively, and seal agreements that are highly beneficial to your organization.
