How do you get more influence at work? + PowerPivot workshop | Steve Herzberg, Grant Paisley and freinds
Author: Grant Paisley Date Posted: 6/05/2013 11:25:42 PM
This month learn (from *the* master) how to convince your boss you should have new toys - I have known Steve for years and you *will* get heaps out of this session.

We are also going to run a PowerPivot workshop...

How do you get more influence at work? | Steve Herzberg
=======================================================
You know that you have a whole lot of great ideas that would be of enormous value to your organisation. Getting others to buy in to those ideas is not such an easy task.
This session will expose you to some of the tools that successful influencers use. Steve will give you relevant ideas that you can apply immediately to assist you to get more of your ideas approved.

Steve has worked closely with Microsoft over the past 6 years helping Tech Ed speakers to become more persuasive when they present. He has run his own company NRG Solutions for the past 8 years. He knows the importance of being able to influence clients to approve the projects he is discussing with them. If they don’t he can’t feed his wife and 3 beautiful children, and that upsets them.
