We all encounter different people and challenging situations at some point in our careers, making it unavoidable to have tough conversations.

Join us for a workshop on Having Tough Conversations with Anne Evanno (CUHK Business School) and Bart de Wit (Bluwater Consultants). During this interactive session you will learn how to approach challenging conversations with confidence, and manage them skilfully with assertiveness.
