Everyday, you're negotiating something and most days you're negotiating on a number of different fronts.

You could be buying or selling, persuading or collaborating. You could be buying or selling, persuading or collaborating. You could be acting personally or professionally, with an internal or external group, in the public or private sector. You could be on the phone or face-to-face, in a board meeting or head to head. You might even be negotiating time or quality. Most people never have an hour go by without negotiating something.

Have you ever wondered how some people always get their way? You'll find out at this real-life, real-world TOP GUN Workshop. Here are some of the situations in which you'll become a "Master Negotiator" after this workshop:

  • Buying or leasing equipment

  • With your children

  • During team meetings

  • Anytime you want something different to what the other party is offering.

  • Over budgets

  • Selling your services

  • When writing a proposal

Working with a team you'll put these skills into "real life" practice. TOP GUN Negotiator applies the same unique principles of excellence which have made all of the other TOP GUN Programmes so successful


Most people in our culture have never been "taught" how to negotiate. Yet everyday, in both our personal and professional lives we are involved in countless negotiations. The reality is that most people don't even recognise these negotiations, and in many cases they are taken advantage, time and time again.
