Persuasion is a core component of all negotiation. Convincing people of your position, or selling your vision, can require significant preparation, effort and skill, and your ability to present your ideas effectively is key.

Whether it’s a high-stakes meeting with partners, pitching to a client, or a workshop or sponsorship presentation, this webinar will provide you with tips and tricks on how to effectively present, position and persuade.

Drawing on their significant experience across a range of markets and industries, Leonie Mitaxa and Li Low will share ways to:

  • Develop insights into each stakeholder
  • Identify and act on group dynamics
  • Make your case effectively
  • Distil core themes and ideas
  • Modify your approach: in-person vs on-screen

Presenter details

Leonie Mitaxa
Transformation Manager, JLL

Through innovation, transformation and change programs, Leonie supports organisations in exploring space, technology and culture uplifts to achieve their aspirations and bring out the best in their people.

A key part of this process is persuading groups of the advantages and opportunities before them. From engaging with large-scale groups at industry seminars (such as the CoreNet Global “Red Talks”), to lecturing on Public Relations at Deakin University, and down to small team decision-makers in her day-job in transforming the workplace, Leonie is a master at convincing people of the case for change.

Building from a diverse background across the private sector, academia and extensive engagement with government agencies, she has the ability to evaluate points of resistance, develop mutual understandings and drive a core agenda. Her position as a chairperson for a local Toastmasters chapter is further demonstrative of her exceptional ability to persuade audiences.

Leonie is one of the industry’s key speakers, and a true expert in persuasion.

Li Low
Business Development Leader, EY Wavespace

With 20 years growing businesses, leading sales organisations and developing deep networks in the financial services and corporate sectors, Li is a veteran at persuading groups.

Having held various leadership roles across Tokyo, New York and Hong Kong, his experience across multiple cultures has given him significant insights into understanding and engaging various stakeholders.

Understanding trends, competitive challenges, market risks and success drivers from each stakeholder’s perspective is key. Coupled with extensive collaboration and consultation experience, Li enjoys public speaking, facilitating and presenting for full effect.
