Young Workers’ Month – Effective Negotiation Webinar

29 Nov 2017

11:00am - 12:30pm

Learn how to negotiate effectively and creatively, what variables you need to consider, and build your confidence to negotiate a fair deal for you and your work at this Musicians’ Union / FEU Training workshop – part of our Young Workers’ Month celebrations.

The sooner you start getting to grips with what you should consider when you are agreeing to take on new work - from rates of payment to other important terms and conditions - the more chance you’ll have of building a sustainable career in the music industry.

This webinar will include:

  • Examining the factors you need to consider before you negotiate
  • Preparing for negotiations
  • Delivering negotiations
  • Keeping focused and professional

The format for this webinar is around 45 minutes of presentation-style teaching.

To ensure that you get the specific advice you need, participants will have the opportunity to ask questions throughout and in a final Q & A (we’ll be on air for no longer than 1hr 15mins).

While you will be able to see and hear the tutors, you will not be visible or audible to them or each other.

This webinar is designed for young members age 30 and under, and new entrants who want to start learning about negotiating successful.

However, if you are over 30 but would like to learn or refresh your negotiation skills, you are welcome to enrol.

This event is part our Young Workers’ Month celebrations across November. Our theme for this year is fair pay; the value of you and your music, and how the MU can support you in getting the recognition you deserve.

If you have any questions about the webinar, Young Workers’ Month or how to get involved in the MU, please email Maddy Radcliff (MU Campaigns & Public Affairs Official) via
