The art of effective negotiation; how to build lasting agreements without becoming either a bully or a wimp. The art of negotiation touches every aspect of our lives -- we routinely negotiate with our spouses, our children, our landlord, our employer, and so on. It is equally important in business -- we negotiate with our customers, our suppliers and our investors. This lecture, \"Negotiation for Fun and Profit,\" is given by Michael Erdle, managing partner of Deeth Williams Wall. Michael is a specialist in mediation and arbitration and gives a thorough grounding in the basics of negotiating skills.
Case studies focus on issues situations most entrepreneurs will face: research projects, starting a business venture, obtaining investors and licensing a product or invention.
