Forthcoming Training Courses

I shall be leading the Purchasing Negotiations Workshop in Dubai from Sunday 19th October 2008. There are still places for this course available, so if you are interested please give me a call. The course lasts 5 days and costs $3500.

I shall be on holiday in France the following in week, and then running The complete course in Purchasing Management in Cairo. This 5 day event is run by a separate company, and costs $3650. Again let me know if you would like to attend.

I shall then be presenting at the Business NorthWest conference on 20th November 08 in Manchester, before heading back to Dubai for the Certified Purchasing Professional: Professional Purchasing skills, which is also 5 days but costs $3550. I think the extra $50 covers the costs of the accreditation process.

There will be a host of courses in 2009, and we are thinking of staging our own public courses in the UK for the first time. The first event will be in Q1 2009 in the NorthWest of the UK, and be a one day event. The topic is being agreed right now, so if you are interested and have any preferences please let me know - it might mean we run exactly the course you are looking for.

Recession Proof your Business - Business NorthWest

I shall be speaking on "How to weather an economic down-turn – Ten Top Tips to recession proof your business" at the Business NorthWest exhibition on Thursday 20th November 2008 at 10:15 am. I will be part of the EEF World of Work Theatre, which is a sizeable venue - so there will be lots of room, and hopefully lots of attendees.

The Exhibition is at Manchester Central, more familiar to some of you as G-Mex. I have been attending the exhibition since it started, and recently visited the sister event Business Yorkshire. I have found them to well organised, well attended and very interesting.

I hope to see you there - as I have said a lot recently, if people are not interested in this topic now I don't know when they will be.
