In 2017, the federal government executed $47bn of new contracts.

Negotiating a 1% reduction would have saved $470m, almost half a billion dollars.

Our MD said that’s four beers per taxpayer. We said it’s ten new specialist cancer units in regional Australia, fifty thousand university scholarships for students from low income households, or $250 for every aged pensioner.

A small change with a significant impact.

But what if we increase value as well?
Better performance, faster delivery, truly engaging relationships, all at a better price?

It’s not about win-win, it’s about unlocking value and finding ways to claim it. It’s about getting what you want — better value for the money spent.

Are you a 1%, a 5% or a 10% person?

10% is a very serious impact—locally and globally—and is achievable by just about everyone… If you know how.

Negotiation is a bit like tennis—most of us have a go at some stage—a hit and giggle match. Very few have the natural talent to be a master at Wimbledon. Everyone, at all levels, improves with coaching and training.
10% improvement? More than achievable.

That’s $100,000 on a million-dollar contract. A good return for $3,000 investment in training.
At one per cent it’s still a good return and, like the magic of compound interest, it gives more year-on-year.

Our programs combine the best of theory from Harvard and Edinburgh Business schools, and elsewhere, into hands-on, practical, immersive programs designed for those who work in and to the Public Sector.

Why the public sector? Because it’s more difficult than business to business—it’s a cross-cultural negotiation of a differing value set in a public environment with policy, regulatory and behavioural constraints. The theory and practice is delivered in context by master negotiators who have worked both sides of the public–private sector boundary.
