    Plenary - You Have More Power Thank You Think  Presented by Susie Maloney, a Negotiation Strategist with Blubonsai Negotiation Group and ENS International.  This high paced interactive session will unlock and demystify a few core Negotiation concepts.  You will learn how to strategically use your influence  and tap into persuading power.  You will start to see how best to frame your approach to your negotiations and interactions.  What is one key characteristic that distinguishes skilled negotiators from the rest? What does it mean for you and lawyers at large? Where will you always find common ground? and Why should you care?  What drives the other party? How do they make their decisions? How can you know?  

    Breakout Sessions
    Breaking Up (Corporations) is Hard to Do  
    Presented by Ray Adlington, Partner, McInnes Cooper.
    Dividing corporate assets among multiple corporations without paying tax isn’t impossible.  Whether the objective is spinning-off or splitting-up, he will review with diagrams the anatomy of the butterfly to better understand the steps that must be taken to avoid the traps laid in the Income Tax Act when considering a corporate divorce.

    Negotiation Skill Build, Susie Maloney will continue to unpack the negotiation concepts revealed in the Plenary session.   Participants will practice the negotiation skills applying them to an exercise or case study customized to our group.  Due to the workshop nature of this session it is limited to the first 48 registrants.
