Pre-Awards Masterclass: Building Trust - 15 July 2016

Business Brilliance Awards is excited to announce an interesting addition to our event. This year the Business Brilliance will be hosting the 'Building Trust' Masterclass by Graham Cox from Boundaries Edge.

In a competitive market being successful is about building powerful relationships and a trustworthy personal and company brand.

We can all earn trust but can we all build trust? How do you walk into a room and guarantee that you and your brand will be liked? Imagine the competitive advantage you would have if people very quickly came to like you; your brand and network would grow, your confidence would flourish and even the most audacious targets would be possible.

The bottom line is that in the professional services world, the opportunities goes to the person that is liked and trusted the most.

Workshop Aim Workshop Objectives
Trust is a Learned Behaviour. This innovative Learning & Development workshop looks at practical ways to build trust using lessons learnt from hostage negotiations, behavioural psychology and Fortune 500 companies. By building trust correctly from the outset it will set the conditions to allow you, through effective communications, to earn and retain people’s trust. ○ Enhance personal and corporate brand identity.
○ Commence relationships on a footing to future success.
○ Create lasting relationships of permanent influence.
○ Increase effectiveness through engagement rather than authority.
○ Avoid inadvertently losing relationships through a break down of trust.
○ How to enhance personal/team confidence and motivation.
