Negotiation Strategies — FREE

January 31, 6:30 – 8:30 pm CST

It pays to be persuasive — especially when it comes to your career. Negotiations are not just about the billion dollar deals, boardroom strategies, or company takeovers; it’s a process we use daily. Negotiation can lead to higher salaries, greater startup equity, and better titles, yet most of us accept the first offer we get because we don’t have the skills or strategies to try.

This panel discussion is designed to help you understand the process of negotiation, using techniques and steps you can apply in getting what you want successfully.

Whether you’re preparing for an upcoming interview, asking for a pay raise, renegotiating a current contract, or slicing your company share, knowing how to effectively negotiate compensation is necessary for every profession.


  • Preparing a negotiating strategy
  • Avoid common mistakes in negotiating
  • Understand the role of influence and persuasion in negotiating
  • Understand basic bargaining techniques
