Challenge: Intro to Commercial for a work experience student
We have a work experience student (likely 16-18 years old) coming to spend a few days in our head office to learn more about being a Company Secretary. As part of his experience, he will also spend time getting an overview of the other functions (Finance, Programme Management etc) including Commercial. We will have about an hour with him and I'm trying to come up with some material to ensure he leaves with a good understanding of what Commercial really is about and how fun it is! I'm working on a short negotiation game/exercise to include as I think this will make it more interactive but wondered if anyone else had any ideas or resources they would be willing to share.

examples and visualisation
This is such a refreshing look at contracting. Too many times I see ambiguous clauses because of how wording is interpreted and almost always a worked example helps clarify the issue via a CCN. If we put more examples and diagrams in the contracts we can be far clearer on intent rather than assuming those who read the contract post signature will read it in the same way.
Hi I shared our recent research on A Guide to Fair Contracts for 'As a Service' at our Shanghai member meeting today. Have others read it - see https://www.iaccm.com/services/research/ - and does it match your experience of 'negotiating' these type of contracts? Are they fair or unduly weighted in the service provider's favour?
