Do you want to gain leadership skills, learn to read other people and develop tough negotiating tactics? Then join the ACC-NYC Women’s Group for a Poker Divas event. It's not about gambling, it's about learning and using poker strategy to help you become bold and sharpen business skills in a fun and interactive environment.  No poker experience is necessary to enjoy this event.


Participants will learn strategies and participate in interactive exercises to learn the importance of:  

         TAKING CALCULATED RISKS WITH CONFIDENCE.  Embrace taking the lead. In poker, it means being the bettor, not the caller. 

ACTING ASSERTIVELY AND STRATEGICALLY. Learn to be focused on your goals and fearless in your pursuit. 

READING NON-VERBAL CUES. Pay attention to non-verbal cues or as they are called in poker ‘tells’, the actions and mannerisms that help you get a read on a competitor.

         PLAYING TO WIN INSTEAD OF PLAYING NOT TO LOSE. Don’t be afraid to project the bravado and confidence to get what you want and deserve. 

         RECOVERING QUICKLY FROM A LOSS. Not every hand or project is a winner. It's possible to do everything right and still lose. Going on ’tilt’, or being overly emotional about a loss, hurts your ability to move on to the next opportunity.

Space is Limited!
