Would you buy yourself?

– What factors determine whether someone will like you, trust you, or want to invest in your services and products?

Finding answers to these questions has challenged humanity since time immemorial. We rarely are entirely aware of exactly which signals we’re sending. Yet it’s these signals that determine whether you land that dream job or make more sales, or whether that first date will lead to a second date. In the television industry, they stress how important it is for show hosts to reach their audience. Yet it’s no different for you! You have a brief window of time to make a good impression on potential customers, friends, colleagues, or partners, or to capture people’s interest when you’re presenting, negotiating, or giving pitches. Whether you’ll be liked or chosen happens very quickly.

The questions are many: Which factors determine whether we’ll like or trust certain individuals? Why do we chose one brand over another? How can an organization inspire confidence and enthusiastic participation?

Angela Ahola, doctor of psychology, understands which factors steer our choices and decisions or offer us influence, and which circumstances and conditions affect other people. Grounded in neuropsychology and social psychology, this inspirational speech is brimming with humor and energy, and provides many “Aha!” moments regarding some of the critical principles of success. Not to mention insight into trends in communication, behavior on social media, and consumer behavior, all backed up by research. Don’t delay in bringing your organization into the future – this is your first step! Serious topics are discussed with a generous amount of humor, and peppered with fascinating scientific facts affecting how we ourselves can create the appropriate conditions for a good relationship. If you interact with customers or colleagues, or if you’d like to improve the atmosphere in your workplace, this is the perfect speech. 

Selected content:

  • Getting others to like you in 60 seconds
  • Your two characteristics that affect others the most
  • Making an optimal impression online – which factors matter on the net?
  • How to be interesting to others
  • Different people – different approaches
  • Can you fix a bad impression?

Would You Want to Have Yourself as a Colleague?

The answer might not be so straightforward! Sometimes you’re absolutely brilliant, charming, effective, you smell good, and you spread joy around you. And sometimes you’re the exact opposite. Why are we like this? Is there anything we can do about it? 

Take advantage of the opportunity to experience this highly entertaining speech, where Ahola explains our behavior both at the workplace and in private. Gain insight into the often hysterical challenges involved in being human, and discover how it’s probably also not your fault that you are the way you are – we’ve been shaped by our environments, and we’re not always aware of our motives, either. 

A cocktail of humor, serious topics, and fascinating scientific facts, this speech discusses the behavior of both you and your colleagues. The questions are many: Why do we act the way we do? Is it possible to make the workplace more fun? Can you find greater happiness? But watch out! There is a significant risk that many listeners might come to the conclusion that they themselves actually affect their own lives – that it’s vital for us to take responsibility for our own behaviors, and to set into effect the eventual changes necessary for improving our professional situations and private lives. If you’re looking for a deeper understanding of yourself, your colleagues, or your customers, or if you’d like to create a better atmosphere in your workplace, this is the perfect speech for you.

Selected content:

  • It’s not your fault – you’re only human!
  • Subtleties in non-verbal communication
  • Different people – different approaches 
  • How to become the best version of yourself
