Could you SEE a benefit in CLEARLY communicating 5x more effectively? Or, do you simply wish you could persuade stormtroopers these are not the 'droids they're looking for?
Would you like to influence how others perceive your company, your products, or even yourself?
Come learn some simple, yet subtle techniques to shift communication effectiveness by a factor of 5 or more. And while participants are advised away from initial use with stormtroopers, any VCs, angels, executives and clients *are* fair game.
In this interactive (that means audience participation!) session we’ll cover:
• Why this works
• Simple, verbal techniques to build rapport fast, over the phone, and in person
• Practice on how to build as well as break rapport (helpful to keep discussions concise!)
