Date: 14th September 2022 
Time: 10.00am – 3.30pm 
Location: Lyric Theatre, Belfast (In-person only) 

Approach to training 
Through a mix of trainer presentation, group discussion and practical exercises these sessions will offer a demystifying explanation of the basics of contract law and empower attendees with the skills needed to be a confident negotiator. Opportunities will be provided to ask questions and share your own experiences.
Participant feedback: 
“The interactive nature of both sessions was great and pushed you to put what you had learned into action. I also liked how open the sessions were with a ‘no stupid questions’ policy.”
