Persuading for Results®

In challenging economic conditions, winning business is getting tougher. Competitors are hungry for business and aggressively discounting their prices.

Persuading for Results® will prepare executives, senior managers, experienced sales people and teams for critical presentations to win business against tough competitors. Working on live pitches, attendees will learn to deliver more effective presentations. Presentations that communicate how value will be created and how they will produce results for clients.

This intensive two-day program includes the Persuading for Results Model®, and examines what it takes to win a pitch. It includes a unique process to help you confidently deliver strong presentations. It is designed to highlight the need to manage both emotion and logic with key internal and external stakeholders.

The essential difference between emotion and reason: reason leads to conclusions, while emotion leads to action.
— Donald Gaine, Neurologist
