Trainer's viewpoint - Keith Wilson

With Brexit on everybody’s lips, we are all increasingly aware of the need to get the “right deal”.  This is as equally true in business affairs as it is in our country’s discussions with our near neighbours.  Knowing how best to approach and conduct negotiations can work wonders for a business’s bottom line.
