A Workshop and Q&A Session with Jonah Berger

2017 Symposium keynote speaker, Jonah Berger, is returning to continue the conversation around his groundbreaking research for his book Invisible Influence. In this interactive workshop, Jonah will take a deeper dive into the subtle and secret influences that drive the decisions we make and how to better understand the influences driving you, your co-workers, employees, family members, business associates and clients. This workshop and Q&A session will cover some key points from his phenomenal keynote speech but will also give participants a chance to actively work with the concepts and ask Jonah more specific questions around his presentation.

The session will help you:

  • Gain awareness of influence and apply this knowledge in order to make better business decisions.
  • Learn how to use the psychology of social influence to motivate yourself and others.
    Reflect on how to take advantage of the upsides of Invisible Influence, and avoid some of the downsides.
  • Use your communications to influence behaviors within the workplace and drive strong business outcomes.

Whether you attended his keynote at the Symposium or this is your first time hearing about invisible influences, Jonah will ensure everyone walks away with key takeaways that will most definitely change the way you interact with those around you. With this workshop, Berger shows audiences how to, as Zappos CEO Tony Hsieh put it, “influence others, make smarter decisions, or just better understand the mystery that is human behavior.” Get the tools you need to capitalize on invisible influences and participate in a lively Q&A with the master of influence himself, Jonah Berger.
