Introduction Programme Register


The IEE Professional Networks and Power Seminars would like to offer you an opportunity to build on the one-day courses on Essentials of Contract Law for Technical Experts and Commercial Awareness that it ran during 2005 by bringing you two more one day courses which will help you to get the best out of your contracts. These new courses Essentials of Contract Management and Essentials of Contract Drafting are set back-to-back allowing you or your employees to attend both days or register for the day that suits you.

The first session in our new series of second level commercial training for 2006 is being offered at Michael Faraday House, Stevenage, on 2 and 3 March. The courses provide a clear and highly interactive insight into managing contractual relationships and drafting contracts in order to make them work for you. The courses are presented by highly qualified and skilled trainers who make the topic interesting without subjecting the audience to death by PowerPoint.


Day 1 - Essentials of Contract Management
After all the effort that has gone into finding the right supplier and negotiating the right deal you need to be sure that you get what you ordered and that the delivery meets your requirements. Getting the relationship with your suppliers right can bring significant benefits to your business. The programme shows you how to manage your contractual relationships effectively. It is a logical successor to our Commercial Awareness programme.

Day 2 – Essential of Contract Drafting
The contract document lays out the understanding between buyer and seller. It should do so clearly and unambiguously. This seminar explains the legal principles of contract drafting and studies some model forms of contract before moving on to discuss contracts drafted by delegates. This highly practical seminar helps delegates improve their drafting and give them confidence to agree or dispute various clauses. This seminar builds on the skills and understanding developed in ‘Essentials of Contract Law’.
