  • Understand styles and culture factors
Info Exchange
  • Share strategic and selective information
  • Analyze information, data and overall situation and dynamics
  • Revise strategy if needed
  • Critical to understand opponent's drivers
  • Style plays a huge role
  • Create opportunities to get to “win-win”
  • Articulate elements and terms

  • Avoid break-downs
  • Constant communications
  • Maintain and develop relationship
  • Avoid “buyers” / “sellers” remorse

To prevent these mistakes and maximize the results of your negotiations we are introducing a new service

The Independent Negotiator

What is an Independent Negotiator?

A hands-on negotiation service for companies seeking to:

  • Expand into new markets,
  • Source new vendors,
  • Target new customer segments,
  • Negotiate with a foreign government,
  • Franchise a business,
  • Or simply close ANY deal on your behalf.

Benefits to Clients

The benefits to your business are many. Some key benefits include:

  • Targeted Negotiations - Different geographies, nationalities and companies have different cultures, which impact the negotiations’ strategy and style. It’s critical to adapt your style and technique for every negotiation. Only a master negotiator is skilled to so.
  • Financial Savings – By outsourcing, your company benefits from having no payroll expenses, no benefit costs, no up-front training costs, and circumvents all other financial costs associated with direct employment.
  • Financial Windfalls – In any high-stakes negotiations, there are a wide range of possible outcomes; the different results can represent thousands, or even millions of dollars. Sure, you or your employee could “get the job done,” but might just leave a lot of money on the table.
  • Time to Market – Mr. Rutois’ expertise will ensure that the negotiations process is streamlined, resulting in a quicker process, which represents both financial and non-monetary benefits.
  • Objectivity – Internal employees are often “blindsided” by their deep corporate knowledge, culture, styles. By having “blinders,” they might often not explore out-of-the box possibilities. Mr. Rutois brings an objective perspective, which has consistently delivered results time and time again.

Imagine the possibilities if...

  • Your team included the only bilingual Independent Negotiator that would handle negotiations on your company’s behalf.
  • This Independent Negotiator had a proven track record, and could help you increase your speed to market and make and save you thousands or millions of dollars.
  • Your Independent Negotiator would apply his knowledge of the human mind, psychology, body language and leverage his winning attitude for the benefit of your business.
  • You had direct access to a qualified negotiator who understands the lucrative US Hispanic market – both from a language and cultural perspective.
