Event Overview

This session is for all people who have to influence others to get their ideas across. In the last couple of years we have learned so much more from what is called Human Science (the confluence of such fields as neuroscience, genetics, behavioural and social psychology, microbiota and evolutionary studies) and about how the human system becomes influenced and persuaded. We have found out that most of our old ideas about persuasion were wrong.

In this highly interactive and engaging livestream, you will learn practical tips and tools from the latest research. In particular you will learn:
  • How the brain comes to be persuaded
  • Powerful dialogue tools that will help you get your ideas across
  • How to get people invested in your proposals and initiatives
  • How to motivate people below you and above you
This presentation will be light on theory and full of interactive elements and discussions. Like all of Dr Bob’s sessions it will also be great fun.
