Negotiation Skills for Alliance Professionals Workshops Launched

First to Deliver Negotiation Training Designed for Alliance Development Issues

Los Gatos, CA October 19,2007   John Soper, of New Paradigms Marketing Group's, will assist in the design and market and important new workshop focused on the unique issues Alliance Management brings to negotiation best practices.  The course will be lead by a leading expert, Janet Martinez, Director of the Stanford Law School's  Gould Negotiation and Mediation Program.  Professor Martinez bases her instruction of the ground breaking work from the Harvard Business School, 3D Negotiation (Harvard Business School Press).  The initial workshop presented in Silicon Valley was enthusiastically received by area alliance professionals hosted at HP.

"I am delighted to be working with Janet Martinez who has developed compelling material on negotiation best practices and delivers it to capture the imagination,"  said John Soper.  He added, "There are many negotiation workshops, as anyone who has read an airline magazine knows. We are proud that this is the first one to combine cutting edge Harvard Business School theory with the context of managing an Alliance Life Cycle.  Anyone in the business development, alliances or related areas can gain immensely from this course."

Initially the Negotiation Skills for Alliance Professionals was offered on November 15, 2007 to area alliance managers.  The feedback demonstrated the demand for this workshop, and New Paradigms is now marketing it locally and worldwide both as a scheduled class and as a tailored workshop to in-house instruction.  Plans for the spring and summer are now being developed.
