The Six Principles of Persuasion

Speaker: Michael Carducci, CTO, Mago:Tech

Michael Carducci brings a fascinating background to this webinar. He’s a technologist and regularly works to help senior leaders improve their results. He’s also a professional mentalist and has been a student of psychology, human behavior and the principles of influence for nearly two decades.
