With the success of our first workshop on the topic of negotiation in 2022, we are pleased to offer a workshop series for 2023 consisting of five workshops scheduled throughout the year.

Workshop Overview

This workshop will teach you how to communicate your unique strengths and skill set with confidence to excel in your next performance review or job interview.

We will discuss what you can be doing throughout the year to ensure you’re prepared well in advance of your annual review, and focus on strategies that enable you to concisely but confidently articulate your value to an employer. There will be time for group discussion and Q&A to ensure all your questions are answered.

Key takeaways from this workshop will include:

  • Communicating your strengths with confidence & leveraging your unique skill set.
  • Setting the stage for a positive & productive conversation that serves you and your employer.
  • Asking the right questions to ensure you have the information needed to make an informed decision.
  • Better understanding how to research effectively and learn from your network to lead an impactful discussion.
  • Understanding your non-negotiables & where you do, and don't, have room for flexibility.

This workshop is led by Sophie Warwick and Jillian Climie, Co-Founders of The Thoughtful Co.

Sophie has spent her career in structural engineering consulting, where she designed multi-use and residential buildings from early conception to project completion. In 2018, she Co-Founded Women in Consulting Engineering (WCE), a non-profit organization to support and empower women in engineering. At The Thoughtful Co., she specializes in developing in-house gender equity policies and chairing Employee Resource Groups and advocacy groups. Additionally, she uses her data analysis expertise from her engineering background to define targets and track growth and retention.

Jillian has spent her career advising and leading teams in executive compensation and corporate governance, both as a consultant, and in-house at two global retailers. Most recently at Lululemon, she led the global equity compensation and executive compensation programs. After taking a pause, she realized she wanted more of three things in her professional life: thoroughness, passion, and freedom. She Co-Founded The Thoughtful Co so she can leverage her niche and technical experience, coupled with her passion for gender equity, to empower women to get paid what they deserve.
