Masterclass Persuasive Communication

How to convey your story in persuasive fashion: for all audiences and in every situation!

You know a great deal about your profession, and you know what you want to share. How do you make your expertise memorable and accessible? And how do you avoid becoming a victim of the 'curse of wisdom'? During this masterclass, you will learn how to inspire your audience, convey your story to-the-point, and how to answer tough questions in a persuasive manner. These skills can be applied during an important presentation, a business meeting, or a pitch for a client. In a small-scale and intense masterclass, guided by a top of the bill Debatrix trainer, you will develop your verbal and non-verbal persuasiveness.

Our most popular Masterclass consists of three sections, spread out over two days:

  1. Building a Compelling Case - Effective techniques to structure your message

Masterclass Active Listening & Influencing

Be a more effective listener and influencer

Breinvriendelijk Beïnvloeden

95-99% of our daily decisions are based on processes in our brain that go unnoticed. Recognising these processes is of incredible importance in implementing each idea.  In addition, this masterclass will focus on your listening skills. Listening is, without a doubt, the most important skill in persuasion. Unfortunately, it is harder than you think: a lot of people do hear what someone has to say, but do not really listen, let alone truly understand the other person. This interactive course provides insights in different styles of listening and focuses on techniques that will help you to understand others better

The masterclass consists of three sections:

  1. Invisible Influence - Practical and persuasive tips based on neurology and psychology
  2. Active Listening for Leaders - Learn how to become a better listener and understand others better
  3. Pitching to Win - Your core message in a powerful, but short pitch
