Negotiating Effective Environmental Agreements (Course 1 2013)
Wednesday, June 12, 2013 at 8:30 AM - Thursday, June 13, 2013 at 5:00 PM (PDT)
Negotiation is increasingly a required part of the day-to-day work of many professionals active in the environment, energy, natural resource management and land use planning fields. While you or your staff may have had some exposure to negotiation, CONCUR’s training can take what may have been informal experience, and take it up to the next level of professional practice, enabling you to produce more powerful negotiated agreements.
