*Negotiating For Fun And Profit*
by Ashley Smith

Some words and phrases you may have heard when people describe negotiating: "scary", "it's cheeky to ask", "uneasy".

The need to negotiate is something we all face in our lives and this month's speaker Ashley Smith is here to help us switch our perspectives and start seeing it as something fun!

In this talk we'll look at statistics around negotiating and go through some practical steps you can take to prepare yourself. Ashley is a big believer in getting comfortable with something in order to do it well, so be prepared for some audience participation, as well as having space to share your experiences.

While you don't have to rush out for a negotiation straight after this talk, you'll be more confident and better prepared the next time an opportunity to negotiate presents itself!
