The seminar, entitled “The Techniques of Persuasion” was delivered by Mohammed Zaman QC, a high profile advocate who is one of the UK’s leading commercial silks and who is renowned for his intimidating cross examination skills. The aim of the seminar was to help businesses learn how to resolve disputes with effective negotiating skills.
Senior partner of Martin Kaye and Chairman of the Telford Business Partnership, Graham Davies, said: “In the current business climate, disputes almost seem inevitable – whether it’s contracts, price, quality, or performance, there are all kinds of flashpoints which can cause trouble. But our seminar helped to explain that a dispute does not have to lead to expensive litigation and Mohammed shared the many alternatives that are available rather than resorting to expensive court proceedings. Knowing the alternatives and using the right techniques can put business owners at a distinct advantage if a dispute does occur. Mohammed is well-known for his mediation skills and his presentation delivered top tips on how to get ahead in negotiations, all presented in an entertaining and humorous style.”
Graham went on to say: “We were delighted with the number of people who attended the presentation, but not surprised as Mohammed is such a popular speaker. His message was that if clients take advice quickly and use the alternative options available, they can avoid expensive court action. We have worked with Mohammed for many years and his reputation and his ability are without question – he had a real knack of being able to dismantle complex areas of law and make them interesting!
