When a business owner is asked about their marketing strategy, too many think about direct mail campaigns, newspaper ads or word of mouth. All those things are a part of marketing, but they are not strategy. They are tactics. Tactics are only as effective as the strategy behind them—the WHY of marketing. This practical workshop guides the business owner through the process of building a sound marketing strategy for their business to reveal the tactics that make the most sense for their motivation, market and money.

Negotiate Naturally: A Workshop for Women Entrepreneurs @ Hervana Coworking Collective | Vancouver | British Columbia | Canada

Negotiation is one of the most valuable skills you can develop, because you use it in every aspect of your life. While some of us are natural born negotiators, most of us would like to feel more confident going into important negotiation meetings.

When you re-frame negotiation as an opportunity for all sides to prosper, everyone wins! In this workshop you’ll acquire the skills to negotiate effectively, preserve your integrity and learn how to be yourself to get what you really want.

This session will help you:

  • Recognize the importance of negotiating for women entrepreneurs
  • Avoid common negotiation mistakes that limit your business and financial rewards
  • Identify three opportunities where stronger negotiation will benefit you and your business
  • Plan your negotiation conversations following the 5 Cs in the Gallant Negotiation™ Blueprint
  • Apply a collaborative approach to your next negotiations
