About this event


Our Ambassador team has recently had many family emergencies and need to postpone this event to have time to support their families.

The event is still happening, just postponed to September 24, 2020. We hope you all can still join us!


This engaging virtual event will discuss salary and negotiation skills and techniques to help you land that new job, in your current position, or for that promotion you're working hard towards.

Please submit your questions in advance. We'll start with a set of questions we prepare, based on what your most pressing thoughts are, then open the floor to Q&A. Email your questions to wtmwinnipeg at gmail dot com or send them to us via our Facebook event page.

Ever wonder how to negotiate for more for a new job or in your current role? Are you wondering how you can clearly communicate your expectations? Do you need some guidance on how to answer some of those tough questions that you'll face in a negotiation? Are how to strategically present your thoughts while keeping everything in perspective something you'd like to learn more about? These could be themes you'd like to know more about, but let us know what you need to know!

We'll be having a raffle open to all of you who attend sometime during this event. You'll need to be in attendance when we call your name to receive the prize.

The virtual session URL will be visible to all of those who RSVP closer to the date.
