Negotiation & Strategic Analysis

SLH Consulting provides consulting assistance at any stage of negotiations with clear preference on helping the preparation of a negotiation which is often under-estimated.

  • As preparation is key in negotiation, I can challenge it by identifying the potential weak points such that you come fully prepared for your deal
  • Some negotiations challenge even the best of your deal-makers. I can help you negotiate successfully by becoming part of your team. I can coach your negotiators one-to-one, rehearse scenarios, prepare proposals and guide you from beginning to end
  • Advise you to review strategic goals or to carry detailed analysis to evaluate which option/approach is the most optimal, taking into account not only commercial or technical elements but as well political, legal or regulatory requirements

  • I carried out numerous negotiations when acting for Fluxys whether it was as project manager or M&A responsible. This allowed to save millions of euros to my company at the time
  • By identifying mid-long term benefits, I could unlock very difficult situations when negotiating for strategic/commercial agreements in the oil & gas sector
  • I like to challenge strategies to choose the most efficient one
