Each week, our colleague Maria Franzoni invites one of our keynote speakers to discuss their life, work, current projects and passions. We hope that hearing more about them will allow you to get a better understanding of who they are.

This week Maria’s guest on the show is Philip Hesketh who is an expert in the psychology of persuasion and influence. He combines a powerful mix of well researched persuasive techniques in buying, selling, persuading and influencing. He is best known for his ‘can-use-today’ techniques to be more influential. Philip talks to us about how the sale of soap and shampoo inspired him to move into advertising, how he became a full time professional speaker and how he changed the weather in February!!! Philip explains the difference between negotiation and discounting and shares some of his persuasion techniques. All this and much more…

Please welcome Philip Hesketh
