Negotiate #LIKEABOSS with Mandy Poon & Liesl Barrell

September 23rd, 2015



When’s the last time you asked for a raise…? Negotiated a job offer? Landed a new client? Haggled a realtor down? Scored a better cell phone contract?

Particularly when it comes to work, studies show that only 30% of women bother to negotiate at all.

Whether you love playing hardball or the process makes you extremely nervous, our negotiation talk will help you up your game. We’ll share honest, behind-the-scenes experiences of real corporate scenarios with some tips and tricks to bring to your next big meeting. We’ll open the floor to hear your stories, concerns and what’s worked for you.
