Selling and negotiation: The subtle art of maximising your skills in both

 21 May 2021

Back to Events


Are selling and negotiation completely distinct skills, or is there a sweet spot where they overlap? Join experts in the fields of persuasion and negotiation to discover and practice how to enhance your own capability in both.

Selling and negotiation are two of the most important skills in business: practice each proficiently, and creating value for your business becomes a given. Traditionally they are viewed as two complementary but distinct skillsets, requiring different approaches, behaviours and capabilities - and even a different mindset.

But is it really as clear cut as that?

In this exciting masterclass, The Gap Partnership and Debate Mate – experts respectively in the art of negotiation and selling – join forces to take a select group of cross-sector professionals through a learning journey in both of these critical skills. Using a mix of technical input and hands-on interactive exercises, the well-documented differences between selling and negotiation will be exposed and examined, as well as the more surprising similarities.
