5 Keys for Becoming a Person of Greater Influence

Much of the legacy you build in life personally and professionally is determined by how well you’re able to work with people. In these two days, we’ll discuss ways to build trust and how you can use that to build great teams in every area of life. You’ll hear strategies for becoming a more persuasive, compelling, and memorable communicator. You’ll learn how to quickly and effectively resolve conflict when it inevitably arises. And finally, you’ll discover a strategy for achieving greater fulfillment in life. By incorporating the concepts we discuss, you’ll become a person of greater influence, and be able to help others around you perform better.

 

 

 

 

 

ABOUT THE SPEAKER

Randy Anderson is co-founder of E3 Professional Trainers, a Texas-based training firm that provides customized training, keynote presentations, and personal coaching to help people become more engaged in their work, be better equipped to do their job, and feel empowered to live a more fulfilling life that will count for something after they’re gone.

Before starting E3 in 2005, Randy spent 20 years in sales and sales management. Most of that time was spent in media sales, which gave him the opportunity to work with virtually every type of business and in every industry. His clients included small, mom-and-pop businesses to large corporations, and were spread all across the United States. It is from that experience that he draws the ideas and strategies to help his clients improve their performance in the workplace and to achieve their maximum potential in life.

Over the last 25 years, he has spoken to tens of thousands of people, teaching the essential elements of excellence for work and life... thus the origin of the name E3. His areas of expertise include: Time Management/Organizational Skills, Sales, Communication, and Leadership/Management. Randy’s clients include companies in manufacturing, construction, health & financial services, and retail.

In addition to earning a Bachelor’s of Science degree in Ag Communications from Texas Tech University in 1990, Randy has participated in and completed multiple courses and programs in Leadership, Communication, Personal Productivity, and Sales. In 2012 Randy achieved the designation of Certified Speaking Professional. The CSP is the highest earned designation awarded by the National Speakers Association and the International Speaker Federation, and is held by fewer than 10% of professional speakers worldwide.
