Persuasive Communication Skills
for Auditors and Security Professionals

Thursday, May 9, 2019, 8:00 AM - 5:00 PM

Holiday Inn Clark
36 Valley Road, Clark, NJ 07066

Persuasion is a critical communication skill necessary in almost every field or function. Unfortunately, the education and training for more technical roles often neglects soft skills topics, which this event looks to compensate for. The event begins with an overview of basic persuasive principles before diving into more specific tools, tactics, and activities. In addition to general persuasive skills, this event will focus specifically on auditor and consultant-client engagements. We will discuss how to be persuasive through a variety of communication channels like email, formal presentations, and reports. Participants will walk away having developed a plan and persuasive message for a situation of their choosing, as well as guides and best practices for most of the common situations they will encounter.
