Workshop changing your client’s behaviour (NL)

May 24

00:00:00 - 10:45:00

Event summary

“Real influence is about understanding behaviour. After all, when you understand behaviour, you can change it.”

Whether you want to convince someone to become a customer, pay your invoice or simply reply to that email you sent weeks back: in entrepreneurship, you often depend on the behaviour of others. And influencing the behaviour of others isn’t that easy.

About the workshop

In this workshop, behavioural expert Dirkje van der Ven takes you into the wonderful world of behaviour and influence. When you understand how human behaviour works, you suddenly see behavioural patterns everywhere, you notice how you yourself are subconsciously influenced every day and you can suddenly explain why people react the way they do. Even if this seems illogical at first sight. During the workshop, we discuss different techniques to influence behaviour; we’ll work together on the behavioural questions you face as an entrepreneur.
