Event Details

ASAP-Silicon Valley Alliance Negotiation Roundtable

Following on from our very well received negotiation workshops, join us for an opportunity to explore your ideas and experiences as an alliance negotiator in this intimate and interactive Roundtable discussion with three expert alliance negotiators. This opportunity to explore your ideas and experiences as an alliance negotiator will enrich your understanding of alliance negotiation theories and best practices by providing a forum for asking questions of our expert moderators and sharing ideas and experiences with your Roundtable colleagues. We will get the conversation started -- the rest is up to you.

If you have attended either of our Negotiation Series Workshops (Effective Alliance Negotiation and Advanced Alliance Negotiation Practice), this will be a perfect opportunity to drill down on the framework and practical tools and techniques you learned. If you have not attended these Workshops (it is not a prerequisite), just bring your professional experiences and questions and jump into an engaging discussion. 

NOTE: All are welcome. Those who attend one of the Workshops in the Alliance Negotiation Series will be guaranteed a seat at this limited-seating Roundtable.
