"To be a good negotiator, you have to think like Wonder Woman."
We loved hearing from Alex Dickinson, founder and CEO of negotiation consultancy Ask For It, about her entrepreneurial journey and the negotiation strategies she has developed along the way. Alex was introduced by Elana Karp, Culinary Co-Founder and Head Chef at innovative meal-kit startup Plated, who gave away the scrumptious Plated cookbook to every attendee.
