    Men tend to achieve better results in negotiation than women, negotiation research studies have found. Is this a problem? 

    Yes it is, because negotiations are an integral part of our professional and private lives: negotiating a salary raise, a promotion, project budget at work, but also where to go on holidays, who takes the kids to school, how often to go see the in-laws and many more instances where we don't even realise we are negotiating.

    This month's monthly networking meeting is focusing on what negotiation skills we need as women and how we can do better in negotiations. 

    Come join us at Pasta & Vino, Rue du Stand 51 on 13 November and brainstorm with like minded professional over a drink, meet old friends, and make new ones!

    Fee: none, cost of a drink (please kindly clear your own tab with the bar. OWIT Lake Geneva is not responsible for clearing your bar bill).

    Feeling festive? Come and celebrate the end of the year with us and reflect on your 2018 achievements!

    Traditionally, our December MNMs have a Christmas twist. We will be playing Secret Santa and exchange small gifts that have a connection with your 2018 professional or personal achievements. Please bring a small wrapped gift together with a short inspirational message. Once the gift is drawn and unwrapped you would be asked to present it to the other participants and share the success story behind it. 

    For example, if you started a new business, bring the product of your business if possible. For the skills and knowledge: let your fantasy work.

    The rules of the game will be further explained during the evening. The maximum value of the gift should be 10 CHF.

    Come and join us and have fun!

    We will welcome you between 18h00 and 20h30, exact location TBC.
