WEConnect International would like to invite you to join us for an afternoon event on Friday 6th June 2014 in Amsterdam from 2pm to 6pm.

Effective Negotiation Skills for Women Owned Businesses will feature a workshop on negotiation skills for female business owners when they're dealing with multinational organisations followed by networking with other women owned businesses as well as representatives from WEConnect International corporate members: Accenture, IBM, Johnson & Johnson, MSD and The Royal Bank of Scotland.

The event will start with a short presentation from WEConnect International sharing an overview of their top tips about building business relationships with multinational organisations.

The Effective Negotiation workshop, led by WEConnect International corporate members, will cover what to do during the three main phases of negotiating (pre-negotiation; meeting and post-negotiation) giving women business owners the skills and confidence to negotiate effectively with large corporate organisations and other firms. WEConnect International's corporate members want to have a great supply chain and 'win win' agreements, suppliers who feel fairly treated and who are happy to work together in negotiations. We hope that this workshop will give women owned businesses the chance to build on their skills in this area to feel more confident when in negotiation situations. When we asked for feedback in January on the topics you would like us to cover at future events in the Netherlands, negotiation was a popular request so we hope this event will be useful for you!

The workshop will be followed by a Q&A session amongst the attendees and WEConnect International corporate members to further discuss the topic and any challenges women owned businesses face in negotiation situations. The afternoon will close with informal networking and drinks until 6pm.
