Negotiation Skills & Strategies for Female Entrepreneurs

In partnership with USM Professional Development Programs, we are offering a 1-day Negotiation Skills & Strategies course for female entrepreneurs!


Course Description: We constantly negotiate with others in both professional and personal arenas. This course is designed for entrepreneurs who negotiate for their business, as well as those who supervise employees and staff members who engage in negotiation. It is intended to provide a framework for analyzing the negotiation process more effectively and to provide tips for reaching agreement.
