Slick Slider Carousel with Custom Next and Prev Buttons

I had a slider the other day where i needed to attach some detached buttons, so added the following click events to control the next and previous events on the slider. 

Note the class names: slick-next and slick-prev are already used if you are binding click events and having issues. 

Note 2: for some reason the previous button works and the next does not work, not sure why this is. Further investigation required here. 

Update: this is fixed, i was referencing slide not slider! an easy fix. Next button works now.

For a long time it had seemed to me that life was about to begin - real life. But there was always some obstacle in the way, something to be gotten through first, some unfinished business, time still to be served, or a debt to be paid. Then life would begin. At last it dawned on me that these obstacles were my life.
