Negotiating Your Way to What You Want
Tuesday, February 12, 2013 from 6:30 PM to 9:00 PM (PST)
Miss CEO is hosting a not-to-be-missed workshop on our most requested topic – negotiation!
Whether you are looking to obtain a higher salary, more resources or a better job title, negotiation is a skill that is critical to master in order to successfully achieve your goals.
Unlike most negotiation events, this in-depth workshop will provide you with practical, useful and realistic information on how soon-to-be and current working women can excel at negotiations commonly found in a variety of professional situations.
Specifically, you will learn how to:
- Develop a more confident and proactive approach and gather the right information so you are fully prepared to negotiate well
- Assess your market value so your expectations are realistically aligned with what you deserve
- Leverage exclusive, real-life examples and case studies of what has worked for many professionals when it comes to negotiating new job offers, raises, bonuses, and promotions. i.e. What does a successful conversation with recruiter look like? How and when do you approach your boss for a raise? How does salary negotiation differ at a start-up vs. big company?
Whether a professional or a student, this workshop is guaranteed to empower anyone who is preparing for an important negotiation or wants to generally be well versed in this critical leadership skill.
Spaces are limited so reserve your spot today!
6:30pm: Check-in and refreshments
7:00pm: Negotiation workshop
8:30pm: Q&A and networking
Testimonials from previous Miss CEO workshop participants:
“After your workshop, I was able to apply your negotiation tips the very next day while discussing a job offer with a recruiter. I just heard back from [the company] and they have agreed to increase my base salary by $10K. Thank you for all your great advice!”
"I found myself talking to my friend about all the things we talked about during the class. Great examples, practical tips and ideas that were easy to take home and re-explain to others"
