In the competitive global environment businesses find themselves in, it is difficult to understand why these businesses under estimate the value of having an excellent negotiation capability.

Studies in the UK (YouGov survey) have concluded that businesses lose significant amounts of money (12+ USD  PER HOUR) through a lack of negotiation capabilities.

MediateSA utilises the best models worldwide including those taught by HARVARD PON and transforms delegates into professional negotiators. These negotiators will also be taught how to continuously improve their capabilities as negotiators and will be able to measure their successes.
