Business Talk and Coffee: "Negotiations: Is it Magic?”

Nazarbayev University Graduate School of Business invites you to the free webinar "Negotiations: Is it Magic?” by Ona Akemu.


"Whether you are aware of it or not, we are often in negotiation situations. Negotiation then is a decision-making process by which two or more people agree how to allocate scarce and dependent resources; it is the art and science of securing agreements between two or more interdependent parties. Negotiation entails getting information from another party, determining what information you have to selectively give to get that information, and analyzing that information to make strategic offers."

Language: English with simultaneous translation into Russian.
