Re. Advertising Contract Negotiation
It is going to be difficult to reach agreement with Emmy over the advertising material. Their principal negotiator, Stella Ragione, appears to wamt a large downpayment on signature of the contract-probably near 50 percent. We plan to tell her that this is impossible. We are happy to discuss the possibility of an advance but personally I believe it would be a mistake to agree to anything above 20 percent.
To clarify our position immediately could save us time. I suggest we inform Ms. Ragione of our views on the matter. We should also make it clear that Morreille Partnership (Marseiles) are happy to take on the project and their reputation for high standards is as good as Emmy`s. We need to resolve this very soon, as time is short.
Q) Why do they hesitate to reach an agreement with Ms. Ragione?
a. she is too rude.
b.she is insincere
c. she wants too much advance payment
d.she urges to reduce the workforce
