"This highly interactive session will incorporate critical concerns and issues raised in a recent IMEX survey of women and men currently working in the meetings industry. Practical, thought provoking ideas for addressing the challenges will be shared by speakers and participants.
Pecha Kucha, the session format, involves each speaker presenting 20 power point slides over seven minutes with the idea of being concise, engaging and to the point allowing time for audience participation. The format also creates an enjoyable learning atmosphere and one which will be modeled for the audiences use.
This session will be co-moderated by Susan Sarfati, CEO, High Performance Strategies, LLC and Liz Jackson, President, Jackson Consulting, Inc.
Key issues to be explored during this lively and interactive session include:
Understanding the Male Ego: Some women do not have the confidence to manifest the level of ego needed to succeed in ego driven situations. Do women need to give up their own style and emulate men? What women need to know if they are managing men, younger or older or dealing with male peers, management and customers
Delegating Skills: Women werent meant to be perfect. Letting go of the need to do it all, to micromanage details and to be perfect is critical. Examine how to become a master delegator.
Equal Pay for Equal Work and Overall Negotiation Skills : Women earn 60 78% of mens compensation on a global level. They also are negotiating in the management and meetings environment. Learn negotiation skills for success in the workplace.
