Washington Area Lawyers for the Arts (WALA)’s Creative Entrepreneurs Series is a series for creatives of all kinds who want to take the next step in their professional career by creating their own business. Explore the basics of forming a business for your creative endeavors, from deciding whether to incorporate as a non-profit or for-profit entity, to understanding copyrights and trademarks, to contract and negotiation skills, and finally to taxes and understanding the grants process. Each interactive workshop is facilitated by an expert WALA volunteer, and includes livestream access, supporting materials, and ample time for audience Q&A.

This presentation and Q & A with Marjorie Conner will cover the fundamentals of interest-based negotiations and avoiding the zero-sum game

Marjorie Conner brings over 30 years’ experience in negotiation to this session.  Marjorie has negotiated resolution in deals, litigation, the breakup of partnerships and businesses, and even disagreements among family members.  Marjorie generally advocates an interest-based approach, using the other party’s needs to accomplish her client’s goals.  Marjorie served on the WALA board from 2005 until 2012.
