What if you could have the same influential skills as a CIA agent who is attaining an asset? What if you knew how to create instant rapport and have the charisma of a successful conartist? What if you could motivate people with the same persuasive power as a hostage negotiator? After intense study, research, and interviews with such individuals (and more), Sharí Alexander is teaching the secrets of conversational influence. She has distilled the influential processes used by the world’s best influencers into easy-to-implement techniques for business professionals.

Let’s agree that there is something wrong in the world when a con-artist knows more about influence than a business leader. It’s time to turn the tables and empower yourself to be a positive persuasive person.

Influence builds stronger relationships, creates motivated teams, and builds your business. Sharí shares stories and perspectives from her personal interviews with CIA agents, hostage negotiators, con-artists, mentalists, and many other masters of influence. Learn the same persuasive principles that they ALL use to achieve their goals, and how you can use them, too! Influence isn’t limited to those who are on TV, who have large fortunes, or sit in the C-suite. Increase your Influential Intelligence with this enlightening keynote presentation.
