“I am in the middle of working with a key supplier to take out unnecessary costs and processes on a project that seems to be out of control. The information in this series provides just the type of tools and principles I need to bring this under control.”

The most useful presentation I’ve seen in 35 years in the business. Omid has exceptional command of the subject matter and a very fine sense of what to say and when and how. Kudos to you for getting him in front of us, and let’s see more of him, please!

Omid you are an excellent instructor, able to focus the attention of the audience and maintain direction of the conversation. I paid for this class with my own funds and could not be happier with the experience. I particularly liked the confidence you had in the material.

“I am aiming to get additional attendees from my company to sign up; this seminar is too beneficial for company to keep as a secret. I found the contract review between UCC, CGIF and which state is best for the purchaser very useful. The three key take-aways for me that I will use regularly are: 1. Doing a comprehensive analysis on what could go wrong and adding that to the contract in advance. This way you are defining what is a minor breach and major breach and setting expectations up front rather than all the work on the backend. 2. I will always use the Most Favored Customer (MFC) clause and negotiate from there. This will reduce significantly the amount of time spent on price negotiations. 3. Most people already send out their contract with Ts & Cs in advance with an RFP but including the Contract changes by Supplier as a key part of the scorecard is a fresh approach that could knock 4-6 weeks off the contract negotiation with legal departments”
“Omid was placid, engaging and kept my attention throughout the entire day. This subject could have easily been stretched out into a three day seminar. Omid easily conveyed the key core variables requiring our closest attention for those of us that engage contract management, refreshing and renewing our knowledge base. Great speaker and obviously a subject matter expert with vast knowledge and a rare ability to articulate his experiences into tangible bit sizes that seized my attention and were relateable to the message.”
LEONARDO COUTO, L'OREAL BRAZIL
