'I had had an interest in the TV and film industry for a while when I found out that the Production Guild were running a short course, which I was delighted to secure a place on. The tutor and guest speakers provided valuable advice and different ways to break into the industry including CV tips. Following on from the course I was able to get my first production role. I am excited to have started my career within the industry and I am enjoying every moment. Thank you, Production Guild, for this great opportunity.'

Leadership and Negotiation

June 2022

Fees: PGGB Member £195 Non-member £225

In this workshop we’ll introduce ways to help you to prepare for and manage situations where you know what you want and need, but the other party sees it differently. Using a mix of discussion and exercises we’ll cover the principles of negotiation and try out some practical tools that you apply to any situation. In this industry we constantly need to negotiate - contracts, credits, rates of pay, our terms of contract. Yet often when it comes to negotiating for ourselves, we can find it awkward or difficult to ask for what we think we deserve. This workshop will cover the key strategies to a successful and positive negotiation. The course will focus on the influencing skills for leadership and negotiation.

Influence is critical to success whether you need to make a deal, ask for a rise, bring in change, sort out differences of opinion or convince someone to do what you ask. Any of these might come under the heading of ‘difficult’ situations, but what can you do to make it less daunting, and increase your chances of success?
