Persuasion & Influence

KEYNOTE

How do you persuade people? When you have an idea, how do you get others on board to help you turn it into something real? Lots of good ideas never get anywhere. How can you make sure that yours do?

Being able to persuade is an essential skill. You might have an idea at work, something you want to pitch in a meeting, or a proposal you want to excite clients and customers about. You might want to get your team fired up, persuade your boss, or even harder, one of your kids. To do it, you need to know how to persuade, and how to influence. In this compelling and informative keynote, James O’Loghlin will share practical strategies to enable people to be more persuasive and influential.

The rise of remote work and digital transformation is redefining leadership, demanding tech-savvy leaders who can balance working from home while ensuring team connectivity and trust. Successful leaders need critical interpersonal skills to build strong, cohesive working teams.

The IECL Leadership Summit 2024 brings together leading executives, emerging leaders, and critical strategists across Australia. This event is designed for leaders, coaches and teams seeking to develop expertise in innovative thinking, digital transformation, and empathetic leadership amidst a rapidly changing business landscape.

"What we appreciated most about the IECL's experience was that it didn’t feel like an ‘off-the-shelf’ product. IECL took the time to understand each individual in our Senior Leadership Team, understand our group dynamics within the team, and factor in our business landscape to create a holistic customized leadership development program that placed us in the driver’s seat creating our own positive change. This was a facilitated journey of self-discovery, true team building, and applied learning which has resulted in growth for us as individuals, as a team, and as a business."

"We partnered with IECL on a 6-month career development program for 20 high-potential employees from 9 offices across Asia Pacific. Our program included a mentoring and a coaching component. We chose IECL because of their great network of vetted coaches across the region, their client engagement and their flexibility in working with us. IECL were able to find a coach for each participant and coaching took place face-to-face or virtually. We were able to engage with all coaches prior to the start of the program to ensure a seamless experience for our participants.
