I am an experienced, professional negotiator. I have acted as principal negotiator in the public, private, non-profit and agricultural sectors on a wide variety of matters. I have negotiated many collective labour agreements, for employers as well as on the union side. In addition to years of experience, I have specialized training in collective bargaining and collective agreement administration from the Federal Mediation and Conciliation Service (Labour Canada).
I have also successfully negotiated complex, long-term, high-value commercial contracts outside the labour field. I have considerable experience with high-value Public Procurements in Nova Scotia.
My approach at the table in any negotiations is friendly, always respectful and to the point. I am there to help my client get the best deal possible and I realize that there will still be a working relationship between the parties long after the contract is signed. I work closely with my clients before, during and after negotiations to ensure that their position is properly understood at the table and that the final document truly expresses the agreements reached at the table before it is signed.
If your organization is facing serious contract negotiations with long-term consequences, you may wish to consider retaining a professional negotiator to assist you to achieve a fair result.
My contract negotiation services (labour and non-labour) are available throughout Atlantic Canada. Please contact me for more information.
