Overview (Program Summary)
This year's Women's Forum will be held virtually over lunch! Our amazing sponsors at Waller will be providing a gift card for your lunch.
Session 1: Promote the Most Important Person in the Room - You!
Through her work with tens of thousands of women leaders across the US and the UK, certified executive coach Nicole Provonchee, has found that many women lack confidence and skills around the art of self-promotion. The reasons women cite for avoiding self-promotion are many and varied: it feels uncomfortable, it backfired in the past, it seems incongruent with their work or social culture, or they just don’t know how.
Join Nicole for an pragmatic, interactive and engaging workshop focused on honing your self-promotion skills. In just 45 minutes, learn how celebrate your success, hone in on what makes you stand out, and determine new ways on promote yourself in a way that works at work!
Session 2: When the Honeymoon Ends: How to Avoid and Resolve Post-Merger Disputes
While the merger of two organizations can be an exciting time full of new opportunities, it is not uncommon for parties to find themselves mired in disagreements post-closing. Disputes commonly arise related to adjustments to the purchase price, allegations post-closing that certain representations and warranties the seller made were breached, and more. Whatever the source of conflict, both parties are likely to examine post-closing results and events to make sure they receive the full benefit of their bargains. While difficult to imagine at the beginning of the marriage, all it takes is for one party to feel they did not get what they expected to stir up conflict and send the deal into a dispute. In this session, advisors will speak to their experiences and recommendations to better negotiate and document transactions on the front end in order to avoid litigation on the backend and what to do if a post-closing dispute happens.
