Each participant gets to pre-select which breakout session she wants to attend. At these sessions, along with nine other women you will learn more from the expert on the topic.


Communication and negotiation is one of the most important skill sets for business success, yet for most entrepreneurs (especially women) this can take them out of their comfort zone, especially when things fall off the tracks.

Whether you are negotiating wages for a new employee, a discount, your new office lease, a purchase of products, or a contract, how you communicate and negotiate can have significant impacts on your outcomes.

In this session you will learn a five- stage model for negotiation, how to prepare, what to do if the conversation gets emotional or falls off the tracks, and how to know it is time to walk away.
