Lunch and Learn at Langsdale: "Inside Influence: The Science of Getting What You Want"

Langsdale Library: Learning Commons, third Floor

Join us in the Learning Commons room 319 in Langsdale Library for a series of informal talks by faculty from across the University. This month's featured faculty member is Dr. Steven D. Cohen from the Klein Family School of Communications Design. 

Dr. Cohen will be presenting "Inside Influence: The Science of Getting What You Want." Persuasion is a central part of our professional lives.  We rely on our persuasive skills to convince customers and interviewers to hire us, trust us, and believe in us.  In this session, we will go “inside” persuasive messages in an attempt to understand how and why they work.  We will discuss the key components of persuasive messages and explore why some messages are more effective than others.

Lunch and Learn at Langsdale is a great opportunity for students to engage with professors outside the classroom, for faculty to generate opportunities for collaboration, or for anyone to learn something new!  We’ll provide lemonade and cookies, you provide the discussion.
