Tough-talking proves popular

Shropshire businesses packed out a presentation by one of the UK's toughest talking commercial barristers.

Mohammed Zaman QC is renowned for his intimidating cross examination skills and gave the seminar in conjunction with Martin-Kaye LLP Solicitors. The event was held at our offices and the topic was "The Techniques of Persuasion".

Our senior partner, Graham Davies, said: "Mohammed is widely regarded as one of the leading 'silks' in the UK, and his presentation shared the many alternatives that are available rather than resorting to expensive court proceedings.

"As well as the various options, including mediation, Mohammed also gave us a humorous insight into the art of negotiation, and highlighted the do-s and don'ts.

"We were delighted with the number of people who attended the presentation, but not surprised as Mohammed is such a popular speaker. His message was that if clients take advice quickly and use the alternative options available, they can avoid expensive court action. Many of the delegates were not only thoroughly entertained but collected some useful advice and tips for the future."

The presentation was open to both members and non-members of Telford Business Partnership, and is one of a series of events organised to share topical business tips with businesses across the local area.
