This one-day event aims to train participants in negotiation skills, providing them insights into the key factors that underpin negotiation across a variety of contexts. The programme will cover a range of competences that contribute to effective negotiation. In addition, gender aspects of negotiation will also be included. By the end of the workshop, participants should understand the process of negotiation, be more aware of their own style of communication, feel more confident about entering into negotiations, and recognise areas for personal development. The workshop will be given by Sarah Blackford, an academic career specialist (MA, Warwick University) with a background in bioscience research.
