This presentation is equally geared towards supplier salespersons and meeting planners. It is a comprehensive look at the RFP process, planner and supplier pet peeves, communication methods, enhancing negotiation techniques, increasing mutual ROI, handling or avoiding difficult situations and understanding external influences in the selling process.
