Tips for Negotiating with Confidence

Women negotiate all day, every day, often without even realizing they are in a bargaining situation. Whether the negotiation is a small, everyday matter, or a bigger, more structured deal, making the most of these conversations is imperative.

Join us for an informative session where Selena Rezvani will share tips from her brand new book, PUSHBACK

What You Will Learn

  • Flex your style based on the topic or person with whom you are negotiating
  • Prepare for a negotiation from both informational and emotional perspectives
  • Maneuver through negotiation using verbal and nonverbal communication, making concessions, managing tradeoffs and closing the deal

While attending this program is FREE, reservations are required.
