It’s a vital business skill that no one has taught you – until now.In this engaging, interactive keynote Heather teaches her audiences 3 Cs of an Advocate (Curiosity, Credibility and Compassion).

As a leader, it’s not enough to have great ideas. You have to know how to make the case for them. Teams follow leaders because they believe, and an advocate knows how to build belief. In this actionable keynote, you’ll learn how to use the tools of a trial attorney to build belief in your ideas, your products, your business, and your team. You’ll learn how to see other perspectives and then use stories and evidence that speak to those perspectives. And you’ll learn to create and collect evidence that is compelling and persuasive so that you can win.

Build Belief in Your Ideas, Your Product/Services, and Your Potential
There are three things that stop us from getting what we want:

  1. We don’t know what we want
  2. We don’t ask for it
  3. Or we don’t ask well

No matter which of these three is your hurdle, you’ll overcome it by learning the art of asking. Your “jury” is anyone you want to persuade or influence. They give you your wins. And most of the time your most important jury is you. In this interactive, engaging keynote Heather Hansen shares how to persuade any jury to give you want you want. She’ll share the tools you can use to help your Inner Jury know what you want and believe you can ask for it. Then she’ll give you the skills to ask for it effectively so that you get it.
