Roger Dawson Will Give Your Audiences a Memorable Presentation that is Lively and Full of Fun. 
More importantly he will give your people new insights into how to Power Negotiate that will translate into more sales at higher profit margins for you!

• Are your profits lower because your customers are tougher negotiators now?
• Are your profits down because suppliers are raising prices?
• Are your salespeople making price concessions to get the business?

If you’ll let Roger have three hours with your salespeople he’ll teach them how to close more sales at higher profit margins with Power Negotiating tactics.
