You've laid out your reasons ... argued your point ... appealed to both logic and emotion ... but the person you're trying to convince still goes in another direction. Sound familiar?

In business you don't always have final say. So how do you help colleagues, clients, or even bosses make the right decision? 

Join Jessica Hickey to learn the keys to communicating with decision-makers -- including how to identify and speak another person's language to boost your influence and get decisions made more easily, especially in situations such as:

  • Getting an internal stakeholder to approve additional expenditures
  • Wording your proposal just right to have a client make a buy decision
  • Modifying the way you talk to a CFO vs. a COO
  • Helping everyone understand how a new change will impact business


  • Learn a unique communication perspective and toolset
  • Identify the "5 Languages of Business" are and why they are important
  • Examine how to use the 5 Languages to translate critical information for stakeholders and decision-makers
