In an increasingly diverse and complex business environment the need to read the room, to build trust quickly, and deliver information clearly, has never been more important. What are the tools we need to make sure first impressions count? In this Masterclass, the entrepreneurial investor and philanthropist Bill Liao shares his secret weapons for getting the deal done quickly while creating a framework for long-term, trust-dependent, relationships, both in the professional space and the personal. At the end of three hours you will: • Be more confident about building rapport • Have learned the importance of listening as well as speaking in successful negotiations • Have practised the last closing technique you will ever need to learn • Please, come as empty handed as possible, no notepads needed!
