Webinar | Women In Leadership: Empower your success

By Cranfield School of Management
How can you be more successful at work by harnessing your power and influence?  How can you get what you want out of any negotiation?  How can you use your network for maximum impact?


We’re not promising we can solve all of these questions but we can share important tips and tricks that will make a difference.

Cranfield leads this collaborative event between four global business schools, providing insight from industry experts and practical tips for women to succeed in business.

The webinar explores these key topics: 

  • Harnessing your power and influence: articulate your leadership brand and manage your future career.
  • Getting what you want: how to negotiate for success; what you need to prepare in advance; addressing challenges - negotiation tips, moves, turns and rebuttals; closing the negotiation.
  • Power in numbers: building your network with practical insight into how networks can best help you with career challenges.




This webinar is a collaboration between:

  • Cranfield School of Management, UK 
  • ESMT Berlin, Germany 
  • Imperial College Business School, UK
  • Rotterdam School of Management Erasmus University, Netherlands
