The WiFA Networking committee cordially invites you to join a series of events focused on PERSUASION, the act of convincing someone to change their beliefs or to do something in the way you suggest. It is often described as the ‘art’ of persuasion because it does not follow a formula, it must be practiced in the moment. Understanding more about this can not only help you learn to influence others, it can also help you to influence yourself to make the changes you want.

Event 1 in the series focused on Using Story to Influence, and Event 2 featured Mindset Matters.

Title: Persuasion Through (Active) Listening

Speaker: The Samaritans, Hong Kong

Overview: To persuade people, I need to do the talking – right?

When people feel truly listened to, connection and the possibility of change arise. Thus, we are often advised to ‘listen’, but rarely is it explained to us how it’s done. This event offers you the opportunity to learn the ‘HOW’ of active listening, from the training team at The Samaritans, HK, which has trained volunteers in active listening since the 1970s.

Date: Wednesday November 25

Time: 6.30pm to 7.30pm HK time

Cost: HK$0.00 – event only

HK$100 – event + HK$100 donation to WiFA charities

HK$200 – event + HK$200 donation to WiFA charities

Venue: Zoom details will be sent to registrants separately
