MASTER CLASS #3 2016 – “NEGOTIATING DEALS”
MASTERING THE ART OF NEGOTIATION IN THE BUSINESS OF SHOW BUSINESS
“In business as in life, you don’t get what you deserve, you get what you negotiate” - Chester Karrass
Whether you’re negotiating budgets, fees or rights, you will have to reach agreements that work for both sides, the show and the business of show business. Creators may know all about the creative process but sometimes very little about the commercial logic of the business – and vice versa. Does this really matter? We think it does because it leaves you with holes where crucial bits of knowledge ought to be. If you don’t understand both sides, your deals will be flawed.
In this four-day Master Class, we’ll expose you to ideas and insights that profoundly shape the way decisions are made when deals are done in the business of show business. Through case studies, interactive discussions and a series of negotiation simulations, you’ll learn from leading practitioners how to balance the creative and the commercial side, how to manage the tension between empathy and assertiveness, how to deal with difficult people, what to do when someone says no, when to negotiate and when to walk away. You’ll discover what’s really making or breaking your negotiations. The answer might be: it could be … you.
