Woman and Self-Promotion: A Valid Business Development Technique

Woman and Self-Promotion: A Valid Business Development Technique

Workshop Overview

In 2005, only 17% of the partners at major law firms nationwide were women. One reason why: women tend to be more uncomfortable than their male counterparts when it comes to promoting themselves in the workplace. Ask yourself: when was the last time you told someone outside your family that you had achieved a particular milestone in the workplace? Research shows that the number 1 best practice for advancing women in business is self-promotion. In fact, self-promotion is not only appropriate, but expected. In this workshop, you will explore reasons why some women are not focused on this important activity, and come to recognize the critical connection of self-promotion and building a solid book of business. You will learn specific strategies to ensure that personal achievements are recognized by not only those who govern an organization—but by existing and prospective clients as well.

Come to this workshop, find your style, and self-promote!
