    Scotwork Launches Groundbreaking Virtual Negotiation-Skills Course to Keep Your Business on Track During This Time of Uncertainty

    Published on March 16, 2020

    Bedminster, NJ :  As the world deals with the magnitude of the COVID-19 virus, Scotwork, the world’s leading negotiation consulting firm, has launched a groundbreaking virtual negotiation-skills course.

     Businesses are in a period of growing uncertainty. All signed contracts seem to be at risk. We face daily challenges driven by changing policies and growing concerns. Suffice it to say, the world around us has changed.

     For 45 years, Scotwork has helped clients gain more valuable deals, resolve conflicts faster, strengthen relationships, and create a deal making culture that produces consistent results. Now, they are helping them do all of that and more — remotely. 

    “Working virtually is not easy. Neither is negotiating. If a business and its people are not equipped to negotiate in a virtual world, the impact to the bottom line will reach far beyond today’s crisis,” says, Brian Buck, CEO of Scotwork North America.  “While the class is virtual, the advice is real. Our team of seasoned negotiators will help your team learn critical deal making skills directly from their remote workspace —anywhere in the world. All participants are live and connected in an immersive, engaging online environment. All they need is a connected device and access to the internet.” 

    Many organizations are restricting travel, limiting employee congregations, and are even having their teams work from home. In an instant, a world that we thought couldn’t get more virtual did just that. As such, the world is faced with a new challenge in terms of how we go about resolving conflicts and creating valuable deals with our clients, suppliers, and internal stakeholders.

     Not only will this efficient, convenient experience allow businesses an exclusive opportunity to learn critical deal making skills directly from their remote workspace, but it will also add a layer of public and personal safety to the process.

     The best part is, when travel resumes and workforces once again congregate, all the skills learned virtually can be applied in face-to-face negotiations as well.
