Ever wonder why you connect with some people and not others? According to Lynne Franklin, it’s all in your head—your brain, that is. She will share three techniques you can use to persuade—not manipulate—others: 1) the steps everyone’s brain must go through to agree to do anything, 2) how to read people’s body language to read their minds, and 3) how to turn any question into the right one—and diffuse difficult questioners.

Lynne Franklin has led Wordsmith for more than twenty-one years, which specializes in enhancing public communication by getting company mission statements across clearly and effectively. In the past she has served as a public relations representative, an organizational communications consultant, a banking and finance journalist, and has established the public relations department at a Fortune 1000 service company.
