The Magic Power of Persuasion
Simulive

This fun, interactive program will help you learn to influence and persuade people better. We all try to influence people every day; to accept our ideas, to change their emotional states & to go to the restaurant WE want. There are small changes you can make in the way you talk, interact and communicate with everyone that can make a huge difference.

After this session you'll be able to get your ideas across more clearly, put people at ease, get them to "know, like & trust" you and control the will of your minions (OK, maybe not that last one.) When the program is over you'll have less stress, a smile on your face and better persuasion skills.
