On Friday, October 18, at 2.00 p.m., our Geneva campus will welcome Mr. Stéphane Royer for a conference called Six Keys to Negotiation. Despite its power, negotiation is an often overlooked skill in many business degrees. Furthermore, many see it as a gift you are born with, rather than something you learn.

Royer will be on campus to shed light on techniques you can use and the science behind them. His six simple tips are easy to implement into your daily workflow and can have a real impact on closing deals. Receiving expert advice on such important soft skills is what can really set you apart in your future career.geneva business school gbs conference stéphane royer success
