for the last several years. After attending the Principles

the principles to his mediation practice and significantly

to deliver the Principles of Persuasion program, which
is based on 30 years of my work into the psychology
of social influence. I am confident that Mr. Sankary

of Persuasion program in a fashion that will give the
participants valuable new insights, enable them to apply
these insights immediately with considerable effect,
and make me proud in the process."

the request ethically incorporates one or more of Cialdini's Six Principles
