The Art of Persuasion: How to Persuade Your Audience – Part One

In part one of this two-part session, George Hawkins will present concepts from his “Persuasion Curriculum” on how to gain the support of an audience. He will demonstrate how diligent preparation can help you overcome challenges associated with persuading an audience – no matter how big or small, friendly or hostile, informed or not. Through entertaining stories, he will illustrate key points, and participants will leave with a copy of the curriculum to practice from on their own time.
