The Power of No: Pushing Back and Advocating for Yourself

  • RetailMeNot 301 South Congress Avenue Austin, TX, 78704 United States (map)

Right off the heels of an incredible June program, we’re already gearing up for another great panel discussion hosted by our good friends W@RMN. The July theme has been developed based on a blend of our most popular topics from previous events, specifically regarding the unique experiences women face in negotiations and hard conversations.

Our panelists will provide insight on their failures and successes in negotiation, techniques for getting a “yes” and diplomatically saying “no”. They will also discuss best practices for handling unsolicited commentary, dealing with pushback, and we’ll get their actionable advice on leveraging tough situations to your best advantage.

The event kicks off at the same time and place as June: RetailMeNot’s fantastic downtown office on the 4th floor of 301 Congress Ave. Paid parking is available on the street, as well as in nearby garages. Public transit and rideshare are encouraged.

As usual, the program begins at 6:00pm, but come early to find a good parking spot and enjoy food and bevies courtesy of Computer Futures!
