The Art of Persuasion
When PAN AM flight 103 exploded over Lockerbie Scotland in Dec 1988, the world was stunned and horrified. Reporters in New York , as is often the case , were covering a national and international story. It had a tremendous impact on the New York area. Part of a reporters job is to put a face on the tragedy. Talking not badgering your way into someone’s personal hell is a challenge and sometimes a moral dilemma. Carol will share that experience with you as well as other experiences ...and discuss the art of persuasion..something reporters, politicians and business people must master. The difference between failure and success is persuasion.
