Essential Contract Law You Need to Know
WHAT IS THIS COURSE ABOUT?
Contracts are essential features of the business world and daily commerce. While a good business contract helps to bring in profits, an even better one safeguards those hard-earned profits at the same time. What you know of contracts, can help to grow your business. Conversely, what you do not know, can cripple your business. This 1-day workshop thus seeks to empower you with the knowledge of fundamental contract law principles that will apply to your business contracts.
Through the use of contracts, businesses and individuals communicate their expectations with each other. If you hold a managerial or executive position responsible for dealing with contracts, this workshop will aid you in better understanding them and in better protecting your commercial interests.
