COMMERCIAL NEGOTIATION - RONO™ BUSINESS COACHING RESOURCE
Based on its extensive experience in commercialisation processes in the resource sector, Ecco developed and trademarked a commercial negotiation business coaching model called RONO™. The premise of the RONO™ model is that to achieve true and rightful value in your negotiation of any high value/low volume commercial transaction, organisations need to have strategies in place, not limited to just the negotiation process, but covering the wider commercialisation process,
In 2023, Ecco launched a new website, RONOSTRATEGIES.COM, as a coaching resource for corporations and SME's,for adding value and setting a standard for negotiating high value/low volume commercial transactions.
The value of RONOSTRATEGIES.COM to corporations and SME's is that it offers experienced based guidelines and strategies, guiding you through the wider commercialisation process to optimise your negotiation outcome and, most importantly, to ensure business sustainability.
Alternative and non-conventional transport fuel markets in Australia are other sectors in which Ecco has developed specialisation. In 2006, Ecco Consulting and EnergyQuest Pty Ltd formed APAC Biofuels Consultants to provide specialist and independent commercial research and strategy development to the Australian and international biofuel industry. Since then, APAC has become a leading independent advisory on the Australian biofuel industry.
Ecco's client base consists of governments (Australian federal, state and local), large Australian and international companies engaged in petroleum refining, liquid fuels distribution and importation, oil and gas production and exploration, alternative fuels development, government, banking and investment, infrastructure, project development and commodity trading.
