PRESENTATION BY

Diaz Financial Services and Insurance – President

PRESENTATION TOPIC
Negotiating a Pay Raise

PRESENTATION DESCRIPTION
Every aspect in your daily life is a negotiation, whether it’s 10 more minutes of sleep in exchange to spend $5 on Starbucks on the way to work (because you will not have time to brew your coffee at home), pizza night for an extra day of cardio. We are so accustomed to negotiating that we don’t even realize it , yet it is so difficult for many people to negotiate a pay raise. Albert will share several critical components for a successful and beneficial negotiation along with techniques and applicable skills to use in your next negotiation.

– Believe in yourself?
– Unattach yourself when negotiating and do your research.
– Timing and approach.

Albert Diaz is an Industrial Engineer with Major in Administration and also holds a Masters of Engineering degree focused on Economics. Albert has over 12 years of experience as a Business Consultant in diversified markets such as: Financial, Retail, Logistics, Hospitality and Technology.

December Monthly Meeting

Join us on December Presentation & Luncheon

11:30 a.m.  at Miramont Country Club in Bryan

PRESENTATION BY
Chris Field
Mercy Project
CEO & Founder

PROGRAM TOPIC:
Disrupting for Good: Using Passion & Persistence
to Create Lasting Change

Please RSVP to Robin Taylor at lwenrsvp4lunch@gmail.com by noon on Friday, December 6, 2019.
Also, please click the ticket URL to pay in advance. If you do pay in advance, you must also RSVP to Robin Taylor at lwenrsvp4lunch@gmail.com.

In late 2014, a friend sent Chris an email about a new college program where students could earn a degree in “disruption.” While Chris wasn’t interested in another degree (for now), he was interested in this new term which seemed to perfectly summarize his life. From running for mayor at age 19 to running marathons and ultra marathons, from Guinness World Record attempts to founding innovative non-profits, Chris had been “disrupting” the status quo since long before he knew there was a name for it. Since that fateful email, Chris has learned everything he can about disruption and, specifically, what characteristics and tendencies disruptors seem to share. Now, he shares that knowledge with anyone who wants to ask better questions, challenge the status quo, and change the world around them. This subject is perfect for any groups who want to push the envelope, lean into the future, and embrace innovation that brings change. What is a disruptor? What do disruptors do? What characteristics do most disruptors share with one another? Why is it that disruptors seem to be the ones who change the world? What can every group or company learn about disruption that will make them better than their
competitors? How can every person get more of what they want out of life by implementing these unique disruption techniques?
