The average piece of business advice to an executive takes about 8 hours of your and your team’s time to prepare and 15 minutes to deliver.

Those 15 minutes simply cannot be wasted.

The Persuasive Advisor Program tackles the challenge internal advisors have with cutting through with their advice. It will give you all you need to make the difference you know you can make, to get invited to provide your advice 5 or 10 times more than you are now so you can create the change that is needed. While it covers so many of the traditional elements of a trusted advisor program such as listening and influencing skills it has so much more.

Here is what you will learn in the program:

  • How best to stand in the shoes of your internal client.
  • How to paint them a picture to clarify and engage.
  • How to use stories to connect and inspire.
  • How best to ensure you have so much credibility, they cannot help but follow your advice.

Who Should Attend: All advisors, for example from Risk, Compliance, Audit, Finance, Legal, HR, IT and Marketing.
