“When it comes to deals like this, or any negotiation really, the key is to display passion, know-how and determination. Get to the point quickly, be persistent and consistent and don’t rely too heavily on prompts, statistics and certainly not PowerPoint slides.” Richard Branson
“…experts are sometimes most convincing when we don’t understand what they are talking about.” Robert Levine
“The most effective persuaders are the least obvious. Almost everyone is savvy enough to put his or her guard up against the fast-talkers — pushy salespeople, aggressive con artists, and egotistical leaders. the people who often get through to us, however, are more subtle. they seem likable, honest, and trustworthy.” Robert Levine
