Lightning Talks: The Art of Negotiation

Level 20. 79 Anson Road, , Singapore

It pays to be persuasive — especially when it comes to your career. Negotiation can lead to higher salaries, greater startup equity, and better titles, yet most of us accept the first offer we get because we don’t have the skills or strategies to try. Before your next career move, join General Assembly to learn key negotiation strategies you can take to the table with confidence.

Throughout the evening, you’ll learn why negotiation is so important, the right (and wrong) ways to negotiate, tips and tricks for success, and how to graciously accept a disappointing result.
