Tony Hughes - CEO Huthwaite Group of Companies
Huthwaite International’s research never stops and this gives Tony a wealth of best practice to share with his audiences. Tony commissioned the most recent Huthwaite research into Improving Corporate Negotiation Performance, which gives a fascinating insight into the strategies of some of the world's top performing companies, in the light of an ever-changing procurement landscape.
Tony firmly believes that without sales there is no business. Huthwaite International’s research proves that the world's most successful companies are those that develop a wholly sales-centric culture. They champion the improvement of sales performance and have a true understanding of customer needs, business issues and a win/win long-term approach to negotiation. To that aim, Tony works continuously with clients to get to know them and their business at a strategic level.
