It’s the start of a new year! Are you ready to move your career from aspirational to professional? Now is a great time to review your business’s past performance and make plans for the year ahead. Townsquared has invited Ted Leonhardt to speak at the Cloud Room on February 2nd to advise you on effectively negotiating your fair market value—so you can do the work you love.
Your creativity and your vulnerability are secret weapons in negotiation. Ted will tell you why creatives are different—and how to use that to your advantage. You’ll come away from this event with new ways to:
- Show your value
- Ask clients for the terms and money you need
- Negotiate with greater confidence
Please join us for Know Your Worth: Negotiation Skills for Creatives! Register for this educational session, get some professional tools to empower yourself, and meet other creative small business owners looking to grow in 2017.
Enjoy a drink at the Cloud Room bar and enjoy some sustainable sushi from Sushi Samurai.
