1. FINE-TUNING THE ART OF PERSUASION
Most people think that the ability to persuade people is a skill that only salespeople and/or business people need to develop/have. The truth is, there is no single person alive who cannot do with this important art/quality.
Whether you are a business person selling products or services,a career person selling yourself/your skills, an upcoming entrepreneur trying to sell an idea, or a wife/mother trying to persuade your husband to invest in that new kitchen - your persuasiveness could make a lot of difference between success and failure.
2. A CHALLENGE FOR YOU
Consider how much more easier your life would be, and how much more successful your endeavours would become if you developed your persuasive abilities. Take a course today,or read a good book - just do something to learn or enhance this skill. Your rosy future will thank you.
3. PERSUASIVENESS QUOTES
"The universe, they said, depended for its operation on the balance of four forces which they identified as charm, persuasion, uncertainty and bloody-mindedness."
~ Terry Pratchett quotes ------------------------
"In our system leadership is by consent, not command. To lead a President must persuade. Personal contacts and experiences help shape his thinking. They can be critical to his persuasiveness and thus to his leadership."
4. Our Vision and purpose
Here in http://www.public-speaking-solutions.com, we believe in the power of words. We believe in the absolute necessity and importance of enhanced & effective delivery of speeches to create better understanding, empowerment and information. Talk should teach, guide, heal, empower and inspire. It should not destroy, demean, lie, gossip, cheat, swear, or destroy - that kind is cheap and useless. That is our vision and that is what we stand for.
