Ms. Edwards will explain how to effectively counter an offer, request a raise, or make changes to your existing role. Topics include how to prepare, relevance of timing, reflecting company needs, presenting value, negotiating for money or other points and thinking out of the box.

Ms. Edwards held operations/sales management, consulting and training positions in service driven organizations prior to starting her consulting business 12 years ago. She offers coaching for individuals pursuing a career change, either by design or through downsizing, merger, or when returning to the workplace.
