We've all done it, missed out on more money and great opportunities because we were worried to ask for what we want, didn't know how to ask or
Research confirms that men are four times more likely than women to negotiate, especially when it comes to their salary. But it’s not women’s fault they feel too uncomfortable to negotiate on their own behalf when we’ve been conditioned to feel this way by society since we were born. As a result women can lose out on making £600,000 more over their working life(!)
The ability to negotiate was identified by the World Economic Forum as one of the top ten skills you need to succeed in the modern workplace – so it is time to brush up on this essential skill.
Over 700 women have attended our negotiation workshops and 98% of them say they feel more confident about negotiating afterwards.
This workshop is for women who recognise the importance of being able to negotiate effectively on their own behalf and want to learn how to develop their own strategies and skills.
She Wins has designed this workshop especially for women to give them the skills and confidence to negotiate on their own behalf. The key to a successful negotiation is preparation and understanding the potential pitfalls and roadblocks.
– About the social barriers that have held women back in negotiating
– The key principles of negotiation
– The importance of recognising and asking for your full value
– How to frame your first ask and counter offers
– How to gain leverage and deal with difficult situations

This event will discuss the benefits of flexible working and give you some tips on how to thrive at your career and personal life. Some companies are
Some companies are reluctant to let it go and embrace the whole flexible working thing: job sharing, flexible working hours, work-from-home arrangements, work-from-anywhere arrangements, part-time work. But the most successful companies now and in the future will be those adopting flexible work schemes because that is how they attract and retain their valuable employees.
Research has found that professionals who are offered the option of flexible working are typically less likely to take sick leave and are more productive, as they feel more empowered by their flexibility while remaining at the same time accountable for their results.
Real Estate Women (RE:WOMEN), Commercial Real Estate Finance Council Europe (CREFC Europe) and DAC Beachcroft are delighted to invite you to our inaugural collaborative event, discussing flexible working schemes and productivity in real estate.
