Negotiate Effectively with Suppliers to Reduce the Cost of Goods Sold and Increase Profitability

Despite employing well-trained sales teams, purchasers find it difficult to negotiate with their respective suppliers. Lack of advanced negotiation skills foils procurement’s ability to negotiate the best deal. Procurement is a profit center. Every dollar of cost savings achieved through better negotiation skills has a positive and direct impact on the bottom line.

This session by expert speaker Charles M. Intrieri will provide procurement professionals a powerful set of strategic and tactical negotiation tools. Charles will show how you can predict the supplier’s next move, think like a supplier, negotiate effectively, and seal agreements that are highly beneficial to your organization. This session will be useful not only for procurement professionals but will also help those who have to regularly interact with suppliers. Non-procurement professionals will learn how to partner effectively with the procurement function in their organization in order to achieve better negotiation results with their suppliers.

This session will help you learn to reduce costs and will share new tools to negotiate and find the ‘middle road” with your suppliers.
