Want to get the upper hand in negotiations, command the fees and respect you deserve and keep clients delighted with your firm? This power-packed workshop combines PSMJ’s legendary A/E practice knowledge built over 40 years with the latest strategies driving superior results at firms just like yours in 2019 and beyond.

ACTIVE: You won’t sit and listen to an instructor for 2 days. This program keeps you engaged and stimulated with an expert facilitator committed to interactivity and inclusive discussions.

GROUNDED: You won’t be irritated with time-wasting, esoteric and impractical business strategies. Rather, you’ll be exposed to real-world case studies that show how A/E firms exactly like yours are winning the pricing and contract negotiation battles in 2019 – and crushing their revenue goals.

CONFIDENCE BUILDING: In two days, we guarantee you’ll have renewed confidence to push back firmly – and successfully – when current and potential clients try to use price and contract term demands to drive those concessions that put your bottom line at risk.
