Negotiation is an art: Will you like the picture in the end?

By | July 3rd, 2017|W2W|

I am not skilled at negotiation. It's something I'm working on and I'm getting better. I was recently caught up in negotiation for work to be done on my house. It was a small job, but it tested me in several ways: My patience, my boundaries and whether I would stand up for myself when [...]

Women in Business: Elevating, Growing, Succeeding

By | April 26th, 2017|W2W|

Thirty years ago I started my career in accounting. Where has the time gone?  Back in 1987, accounting was a male-dominated profession and my first job at KPMG Peat Marwick in New Zealand had only four women out of 30 auditors in my intake year.  My second position in London, England was no better: I [...]

By | April 2nd, 2017|W2W|
