Influencing and negotiating upwards can be challenging, with subtle issues of hierarchy and professional respect in play.

Having a clear sense of how to present a convincing case to senior people may make a big difference.
This specifically designed masterclass for public sector professionals explains the core theory and practical techniques for negotiating and influencing in all contexts, with an added focus on how this plays out within the organisational hierarchy.
