We invite you to attend our latest RG10 Webinar- Negotiation Masterclass. In whichever part of real estate you are involved, negotiation is key to success and no one is better placed to illustrate this than our experienced speakers: Franco Sidoli, Stafford Lancaster and Richard Hopkinson-Woolley. Following on from the RG10 webinar on influence, this masterclass hears from these three experienced negotiators about their philosophies and anecdotes in approaching negotiations and how they have driven success. We will hear from the perspectives of a broker, a developer and a lawyer to provide an insight into what goes on behind the scenes of a transaction. This is not a lecture on how to structure a negotiation but a conversation about real life examples and the instinctive decision making involved to achieve the best deal.
