Increase Your Professional Influence

Everyone influences others. You don’t have to be in a high-profile occupation or a leadership position to be an influencer; whenever your life connects with another person, you exert influence. No matter what your goals are in life, you can achieve them faster, you can be more effective, and the contribution you make can be longer lasting if you learn to develop your influence. But learning to influence others in a new country and culture can be challenging and confusing.

Come join this lively presentation designed to help you to learn how to grow your professional influence and increase your ability to positively impact others in your life and in the Canadian workplace. Gain a Canadian perspective of how to positively influence others and explore ways to increase your influence utilizing key teachings from top leadership and personal development experts including John C. Maxwell and Stephen Covey.  Apply what you learn and watch your personal and professional success grow!
