Roger Dawson Will Give Your Audiences a Memorable Presentation that is Lively and Full of Fun. 
More importantly he will give your people new insights into how to Power Negotiate that will translate into more sales at higher profit margins for you!

• Are your profits lower because your customers are tougher negotiators now?
• Are your profits down because suppliers are raising prices?
• Are your salespeople making price concessions to get the business?

If you’ll let Roger have three hours with your salespeople he’ll teach them how to close more sales at higher profit margins with Power Negotiating tactics.


Here’s What Roger Will Cover in a Three-Hour Presentation:

Beginning negotiation gambits: How to Flinch, Bracket, Play Reluctant Seller, use the Vise. Six reasons why you should always ask for more. Two reasons for never saying Yes to the first proposal.

Principles of Power Negotiating: The nine principles that always affect a negotiation.
At the end of each module participants take a brief quiz.
We give you a 19-page outline that includes a gambits quiz.


The All-Day Seminar also Includes:

The five things that make you a good negotiator.
How time pressure affects the outcome.
The importance of gathering information and how to do it.
A one-hour workshop exercise that enables participants to practice what they’ve learned.

The Two-Day Seminar also Includes:
