According to a news release about the webinar, the discussion will focus on how “we can all be terrible communicators at times. But having awkward or difficult conversations is part of being a professional…not to mention it’s essential for getting what you want out of work and life. We will dive into what makes these conversations so ‘difficult,’ and review best practices for handling these situations with tact and professionalism.”

Registration for the free webinar is now open.


The Professional Women in Pest Management, of which PWIPM of New England is a chapter, is an affiliate group of the National Pest Management Association (NPMA) whose mission is to attract, develop and support women in the pest management industry through educational programs, resources and peer networking.
