Oct 4 Women & Negotiation w/ Giuseppe Conti, Zurich

Dear INSEAD Alumni,

You are invited to  “Women and Negotiation”, a unique and lively evening conference on October 4th!

Women & Negotiation w/ Giuseppe Conti, IWIB
October 4, 2017, Zurich

In today’s world, there is no doubt that negotiation skills are critical for success in business. Yet research shows that men and women have very different approaches to negotiation and that even when women use similar techniques to men’s, they are perceived differently. Giuseppe Conti will shed light on each gender’s approach to negotiation, and provide some great tips for women on how to become master negotiators!  It will be followed by a networking cocktail. Join us to learn about the latest thinking, as well as tools and techniques to improve your skills! This event is an encore following the very successful event held on March 8th in Geneva.

Giuseppe Conti
Founder CABL.ch

Giuseppe Conti is an award winning negotiation lecturer at leading European business schools (INSEAD, IMD, Oxford, RSM, HEC Paris, SDA Bocconi, ESADE…), founder of CABL.ch and 20 years procurement professional.
