Sunshine Coast, Boardroom Banter: Negotiating For Success

Date: 16 October 2019 9:45 AM – 11:45 AM
Location: The Hive Manuka Meeting Space, Tower 2, Level 1, KonTiki Building, 55 Plaza Parade, Maroochydore,4558

Join Business Women Australia members and guests at The Hive Meeting Space for a Boardroom Banter on the art of negotiating positive outcomes.  BWA Chapter Leader, Cindy Turner will be joined by Sonia La Penna, Director of HR Synergy, who will share her experiences, tips and traps when negotiating in business settings.


Poor negotiation can cripple an outcome and while most negotiating strategies seem like common sense, it’s not uncommon for people to get caught up in the emotion of the moment and ignore basic instincts. Emotion, luck and magic have no place in a successful negotiation. It takes a deeper level of conscious thought, preparation, research, communication skills and discipline. Hear about the keys that will unlock your ability to get a negotiated outcome with positive results.


This Boardroom Banter will appeal to executive and professional business women, business owners, entrepreneurs, board directors and team managers.


A light morning tea will be provided.
