The beginning of interactions is important…the most important. The primacy effect states that people will remember and be more influenced by the beginning of an interaction than any other part. This high impact three hour workshop provides practical advice all professionals can use to begin any interaction in the best possible way. Interactions include meeting a person for the first time, the opening of a presentation, a voice message, writing an email, presenting on skype. Knowing what to say, and how to say it at the beginning breeds the confidence and composure needed for the rest of the interaction.
