STRATEGIC PA NETWORK MASTERCLASS | INSIDE THE HEAD OF A CEO: C-SUITE NEGOTIATION SKILLS | CLIVEDEN HOUSE | WEDS, 22ND MARCH 2023
Join us with Gordon Hall as we brush up on our negotiation skills. We are always negotiating! Whether externally with suppliers or customers, or internally with colleagues – we negotiate all the time. It might be with key stakeholders, external contracts, or even for our own personal contract including pay and conditions. Negotiation is a skill that transcends others, and if done well will help you get what you want, build great relationships and get things done!
INSIDE THE HEAD OF A CEO SERIES…
What do you think your CEO is thinking? Future vision, adapting strategy to cope with the ever-changing world we live in. Or maybe restructuring and investing skills into the team to maximise their impact. Or maybe the financial performance, sales, margin, and status against growth targets?
The reality is often different. CEOs commonly spend too much time working in their business rather than on it – not freeing themselves up for strategy – getting stuck in the day-to-day weeds! Some are very lonely with little unbiased advice around, and this can often cause anxiety over their performance, and they can feel an imposter in the role. This series gets you to think inside their head – enabling us to support and challenge to an improved level.
OUR SPEAKER FOR THE EVENING:
Gordon Hall | Peer Group Chair, Vistage | Speaker | Negotiator
A career spent in senior board level roles in UK retail, and many years as a negotiation consultant. Gordon has advised and coached some of the world’s leading organisations and leaders with their negotiations. A trained coach, he now chairs Vistage peer advisory groups, helping CEO’s and business leaders become great leaders.
When a house is as beautiful as this, it’s only right that it has been at the centre of so many moments in history. With distinguished guests from Queen Victoria to Winston Churchill, including owners as characterful as Nancy Astor and from duels to political scandal, Cliveden’s history is drenched in glamour, intrigue and drama. Standing proud in the heart of the Berkshire countryside, just 40 minutes from Central London, overlooking the River Thames and surrounded by 376 acres of National Trust gardens, Cliveden is as spectacular as it is distinguished.
