Welcome to my blog.
There is nothing more fascinating in this world than people, and there is one thing we all wonder about ourselves and each other: what makes us tick? Why do we do what we do? How can we influence others to do what we want, how can we be more persuasive, to get what we want?
In this space I will explore techniques of influence and persuasion that are useful for all of us in all of our pursuits, but with a special emphasis on our dealings in the business world.
I was trained as a lawyer, but my first love was social psychology. Fortunately, I have come full circle and now make a career sharing what I know about it as a professional speaker and trainer.
I don’t pretend to know everything about management, business, sales techniques, or branding. I don’t know everything about psychology. But I focus on my passion, and apply my knowledge and experience to a few related areas:
Influence and Persuasion Techniques
Persuasive Business Presentations
Storytelling in business, for leaders and sales professionals
Assertiveness – because if you are not assertive, you are not likely to be persuasive or be an effective negotiator
I like to help people get what they want. Most people say they don’t want material possessions or professional success so much as they just want to be happy. Then they go back to climbing the corporate ladder and trying to get rich.
Most of us have realized that it’s the simple things that make us happy. I enjoy sharing, but blogging is not my life. I won’t be posting every day. But when I do have something to share relevant to the above areas, I’ll be here. And I hope to “see” you here too.
All the best,
