There are many fine Negotiation Training companies out there, some very accomplished Negotiation Coaches and some inspirational Negotiation Gurus.
But we recognise that no matter how many books we read, how many videos we watched and no matter how many training courses we attended... we needed to practice to become better!
Out of this fundamental need The Negotiation Club was born ... a place where like minded individuals could meet regularly to practice their negotiation skills in a safe environment where mistakes are welcome and lessons learnt.
NICE TO MEET YOU
I'm Philip Brown
Many many years ago I helped my father as he delivered some of the earliest negotiation specific training courses in the UK.
During this time, acting as the camera man, I was responsible for videoing mock negotiations with Rubber Gloves and Goliath Cranes.
From this ... a passion to learn negotiation was born.
Learn how to maximise your negotiations.
Practice how to reduce risk through negotiations.
Practice how to grown value for both parties.
"Phil was an amazing host, easy to speak to, delivered the sessions perfectly. However, I must say his motivation and outlook on everyone's negotiation was amazing."
- Jerome Mascarenhas
"If you're looking to enhance your negotiation skills, this is the only place to go!"
- Marcus Hill
"Coming into these session I did not know what to expect but now I feel confident in my skills and that is because of Philip. His teaching methods are invaluable as they are interactive."
- Aisha Naseem
A Return To Training
Having graduated University I joined an International Graduate Scheme.
It was during this time I happened to attend the very same negotiation course my father gave, but this time as an attendee.
Once again, the fun of training left me with an itch to know more ... and be better.
Something is missing
I attended many negotiation courses but I came to a realisation... we often negotiate as lone wolves with little support and no feedback.
We need a "Negotiation Buddy" who can watch over us, watch our backs and show us where to improve.
Time To Do Something
I actually spent four years attending a Public Speaking Club because I was so impressed with the format.
It was time to take the best bits and combine them with a thirst of Negotiation practicality to create the right format for professionals to practice their negotiation skills.
Negotiation Cards Are Born
The great thing about Public Speaking Clubs is the ability to jump into a speech with no preparation.
Nothing on the market allowed the same for Negotiations.
Everything was based on pages of explanations... so I created the Negotiation Cards and practicing negotiation skills took a giant leap forward!
The Negotiation Club is Born
Across the country "Taster" sessions are delivered to validate our ideas and check out interest ...It's all good!
So if you want to start your own club, become a member of a club or just want to practice your negotiation skills with a pack of cards and a colleague then you're in the right place.
We all go ZOOM!
Following the impact of the 2020 pandemic we take negotiation practice online.
The results are incredible and negotiation skills development will never be the same again!
