The Power of Influence
The ability to influence others is a highly valuable skill. Being able to shape how others think, feel and act delivers exponential benefits in today’s working environment. Persuasive communication can be the inspiration for support, or the initiator of change. It can be the motivation for increased effort, or the key to sales success. In this workshop, you’ll learn how to positively influence others by building their trust and understanding your own influencing style. Discover how to lead others to your goal by targeting their wants and using language that resonates.

FCM Illuminate Testimonial:
"I had the opportunity to attend both the Payments & Expense Solutions Showcase and the Aviation Workshop. I found them to be an extremely valuable use of my time. The Expense Solution presentations allowed me to collect all the initial information I needed for our business to evaluate and enter further discussions with providers. While the Aviation Workshop provided me with an insight into a full range of items to consider when evaluating Airline proposals. These events are unique in the travel industry because of the calibre of the attendees and the comfortable environment in which to share information and be educated. I look forward to attending the next FCM Illuminate."
