I was graciously invited by my friend Suhail Al-Gosaibi to participate in a workshop about successful negotiation. The workshop was conducted by Peter Nixon. What I subconsciously knew or gleaned over most of my adult life, was elegantly focused by Mr. Nixon in a space of just over 2 hours. The event was an eye opener on many levels. I’m still digesting the information I received and look forward to going through the handouts and explore the issues raised more thoroughly.
The event was hosted in The Capital Club whose premises is in the 51st floor of the East Wing of the Bahrain Financial Harbour. The location is awe inspiring, even more so when you look out of the floor-to-ceiling windows and view the complete and uninterrupted vista of Manama and Muharraq in the distance. I suspect that on a good day, you could see most of Bahrain from that location.
But wait, the wonder doesn’t stop there. If, the call of nature beckons, believe me you need to heed it immediately, because as I discovered, the views awaiting you even from the bathroom are even more breathtaking! Here’s a quick shot:
Now imagine standing at one of those urinals; would you want to finish quick and leave?
I was hoping to read more about the “eye opening” event. Nowadays, it is difficult to negotiate with people whether work related or not. People tend to stick to the idea they have and ignore without even trying to listen to what others have to say. Hence, I was hoping for you to share things you picked up from this event.
You will once I get round to it. In the meantime, please visit Peter NixonÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s site as it contains some good information too.
Thanks for coming guy. A “P”, huh? It took me a while. Love the toilets there ;p
