Pre-suasion: Setting the Stage for Influence

July 12, 2019 @ 11:30 am - 1:00 pm

| TIGER Talk

This TIGER Talk, led by Brian Ahearn, will be valuable to any business person who must influence others to achieve their goals. In today’s highly competitive business world, that includes virtually everybody!

“Pre-suasion” is a hidden gem when it comes to your ability to influence people. It’s the process of arranging for an audience to be receptive to a message BEFORE they encounter it. You could call it “setting the stage” and research shows it can make your attempts at influence much more powerful.

Come and learn how pre-suasion can help you reach your important business goals – faster and more easily.

Brian Ahearn is the Chief Influence Officer at Influence PEOPLE. An international keynote speaker, trainer, coach and consultant, Brian specializes in applying the science of influence and persuasion in everyday situations.

Brian is one of only 20 individuals in the world who currently holds the Cialdini Method Certified Trainer® designation. This specialization in the psychology of persuasion was earned directly from Robert B. Cialdini, Ph.D. – the most cited living social psychologist in the world on the science of ethical persuasion.

Brian’s passion is to help you achieve greater professional success and enjoy more personal happiness. He does this by teaching you how to ethically move others to action using the science of persuasion. Always looking to perfect his presentation skills, Brian regularly does improv comedy and some occasional acting. This enables him to have fast-paced, lively and engaging presentations.

A cum laude graduate of Miami University, Brian has been in the business arena for more than 30 years and training people for more than two decades.

Brian is also a prolific writer. His blog has readers in 200 countries and was named one of the Top 30 Psychology Blogs of 2012 by the Online Psychology Degree Guide. In addition to his writing, Brian authored the Learning course “Persuasive Selling” which has been viewed by 60,000 people. Subsequently, two more of Brian’s courses went live in 2019: “Persuasive Coaching” and “Building a Coaching Culture: Improving Performance Through Timely Feedback.”
