I’m involved in daily negotiation situations whether it is a business or in terms of salary increment from the demand of personnel or customer negotiations, what I’ve learned during these two days will help me. To those who have yet to attend this event, I’d say go for it! Don’t have any expectations. Go with a free mind and come back with very simple, 3 to 4 ideas and stick to that. I love Jim’s sense of humour very much! Good examples from him; very insightful!
