Creating and Claiming Value in negotiation

  • Wed 06 Apr 1:00 pm – 2:00 pm
  • Online
    • Jeff Heasman, Insurance UpSkill

This masterclass in negotiation focuses on how to create and claim value in a negotiation. A critical skill in a hard market. We will look at how to ensure the negotiation does not become focused around price and premium by discussing how to create value in a negotiation through identifying interests. We will focus on how to identify distributive interests (win-lose), integrative interests (win-win) and common interests. We will then build on this by looking at how you create a strategy for placing a value on these interests for you and your negotiation partner and then how you present proposals in which value is created for all but in a way that you end up claiming the lion's share.

BI Regional Update

We have all closely followed the BI Test case launched by the FCA late 2020, with the final judgment having been handed down on 15 January 2021. The outcome was clear and far-reaching. The case highlighted the ongoing exposure of insurance brokers who arranged the relevant policies (who should have by now reassessed their advice process under ICOBS, duty of care to clients). Now that the noise has settled, we will review how the industry acted on the findings and what (if any) other implications have emerged.
