The Negotiation Club are no strangers to Harper Adams, having worked with students previously to help them build and develop vital business skills that support their degree studies.
As term came to a close, students undertook four negotiation training sessions developed by the Club as part of the second-year undergraduate Sales and Customer Service module. The sessions were designed to support pre-placement professional skills development.
While typically the Club comes to campus to deliver this training, this year the module was redeveloped so that it could be run online via Zoom. For The Negotiation Club, this was their largest cohort to date with the added challenge of engaging with students online.
Hannah Whitaker, a second year student studying BSc (Hons) Agri-business commented: “I have thoroughly enjoyed the sessions and really feel I have progressed. Even over Zoom, I feel it has been interactive and worked really well.”
Philip Brown, CEO of the Club, said: “I am incredibly impressed with both the students of Harper Adams and the inventive academic teaching team for their engagement during the delivery of the The Negotiation Club’s workshops.
“We often forget how negotiation skills are essentially problem solving skills and form the foundation of many business and personal interactions.
“Harper Adams’ genuine innovative approach to developing their students for real world business commerce is one that needs to be emulated across all universities.
“I look forward to watching the University and the students’ future success.”
