The Sharjah Chamber of Commerce & Industry, SCCI, in cooperation with the Dubai Entrepreneurship Academy, recently organized two workshops via the video conferencing technology for the members of Tijarah 101 Center and those interested in establishing their own business.
Held under the sponsorship of the National SME Program, the event comes as part of the SCCI’s keenness to coordinate with all concerned and specialized agencies to attract advanced training programs and to reinforce the vital role of entrepreneurs in the current circumstances due to the spread of the new coronavirus (COVID-19).
The first workshop “Effective negotiation in time of crises – how to overcome COVID-19 crisis” included a training program focused on mechanisms for assessing challenges in times of crisis and how entrepreneurs overcome those challenges by creating effective negotiation tools that help increase sales and opening markets, in addition to explaining negotiation techniques and skills.
While the second workshop was entitled “Flexible strategy in confronting crises” and dealt with how to improve work performance and implement appropriate strategies for doing business by implementing a flexible strategic framework and measuring the readiness of business strategies to meet current and future challenges.

The workshops topics are tailored to meet the requirements of the current stage and to help entrepreneurs overcome all the challenges they face.”
“The SCCI is always keen on the coordination with all academic and specialized parties to attract programs and workshops designed to develop the skills of entrepreneurs and owners of small and medium enterprises, as well as to improve their capabilities to face any impacts that may arise, by providing them with the necessary scientific knowledge,” she noted.
The workshop “Effective negotiation in time of crises” highlighted the steps that should be taken before making a negotiation decision, including defining the topic, the goal, the expected, and the sought-after results, as well as preparing all supporting tools before the negotiation process.
While the “Flexible strategy in confronting crises” workshop shed light on the methods of successful planning to deal with the changes through the flexibility in changing the way of work, the professional activity, or the surrounding environment to overcome any difficulties or extraordinary challenges
