2019 Financial Fitness: Knowing Your Worth

Thursday, August 22, 2019, 5:30 pm

Join WISE Twin Cities on Thursday, August 22nd at the Renaissance Minneapolis Hotel, The Depot from 5:30PM-7:30PM for our Financial Fitness Event - Knowing Your Worth: Take Command of Negotiations.

Successful negotiations demand communication that is clear, concise and convincing. Knowing what you want and why is the first step to determining how to get it. Whether seeking a raise or promotion or to secure an advantageous business opportunity, participants in this entertaining and introspective workshop will emerge with the skills to present their best selves, manage conflict with confidence and fact-check a pesky internal narrator. Define success on your own terms, discover why negotiation is a two-step process and determine how to use “no” as your “know.”

We are proud to announce our 2019 Financial Fitness Keynote is:

WISE Financial Fitness

The WISE Financial Fitness program is designed as a blueprint to provide WISE members with resources and tools for better fiscal management and understanding of overall business operations. The Financial Fitness program is exclusively for WISE Members and the focus is on financial strategy and the business acumen needed to succeed in today’s competitive workplace.

With a growing number of women owned small businesses, and the rising number of women who lead companies and are in various business leadership capacities, the Financial Fitness program will address topics such as how to develop and manage budgets, understanding the valuation process as it applies to the health of an organization/department/business, salary negotiation and fee structure, and other finance related topics that are critical to a woman’s career advancement.

Financial fitness skills include strengthening core financial literacy concepts and metrics, streamlining processes such as budgeting, forecasting, and reporting, and stepping up compliance.
