BBC Friday 4 January 2019 – Think Club 2019

Join us this BBC Friday to kick off the new year with THINK CLUB 2019 business strategy and sharing roundtable, with BBC Thinkologist, William Ruddick. Topic: Verbal Judo, The Gentle Art Of Persuasion.

When communicating and dealing with people it is critical to persuade people to act and communicate with you. We’ll consider the following: what never to say; engaging people through empathy; listening better; block those verbal attacks in their tracks. Mushin: a samurai warfare state of mind defined as “still center,” the ability to stay calm, to read your opponent.

Be here, be free, be businesswise. For, in a sense, me hearties, as serial entrepreneurials, we all be business wise! Domo arigatogozaimashita.
