Online video conferencing

This ninety minute session includes a wide variety of ideas and techniques to improve your influencing and persuasion skills. We will highlight how cognitive thinking, behaviours and decision making are not always as rational as economists and others might have us think. Focusing on the work of leading behavioural scientists we will identify subtle ways to positively influence. We will also explore some of the most persuasive techniques including priming, conditioning and nudge theory.

Lead facilitator

Jim Timpson  

Jim joined Elect in 2004 to set up the “Business of Healthcare” work-stream focusing on the financial sustainability of NHS services. This built on 7 years of experience in the IT recruitment business and 10 years of general management experience gained via the NHS Management Training Scheme. After a few years helping members on joint ventures, business cases, tender responses and negotiation strategies he was being asked to do increasing amounts of facilitation, change management and leadership development work. This prompted him to gain first a certificate in practice and then an MSc in Organisational Development from Roffey Park Institute. He still works on business oriented projects but a growing proportion of his time is devoted to work on Resilience; Conflict and Culture.
