IoD Advance Insight Webinar: How better influencing skills are vital for your organisational growth

15 Apr 2020
Online, Online

Insight Webinars – run by members, for members – are designed to enable you to explore a key topic, grow your network and gain practical advice from experts within the Advance community. This webinar will be hosted by Heather Wright, Managing Director and Owner at Advance Performance Limited. Please see below for the full bio. 

Influencing skills are a vital part of our tool kit for achieving success. It doesn’t matter if you are an introvert or an extrovert you can be a powerful influencer.

Research shows that interpersonal skills are a huge, if not the largest, part of our ability to be successful in business and in life in general but most people spend more time developing other skills.

Only a tiny percentage of businesses invest in teaching people how to influence.  Words matter – you only have to remember how many texts and emails you receive on a weekly basis that drive you nuts.  This session will open your eyes and make you think more about the words you use and how to use them effectively to influence others.

This session will give four essential steps to becoming a powerful influencer.  

This workshop will be led by IoD Advance member Heather Wright, Managing Director at Advance Performance Limited. Please see below for full bio.
