This Funzing Experience:

In the current political and economic climate, persuasive communication has become an issue that affects many people. We find it difficult to understand why some people might believe what they believe, we want to get our views across to others, we want to see positive change in the world, we want to make a good first impression, we want to communicate our ideas and personality to rooms full of strangers,... and sometimes we want to do all this under stressful circumstances. Persuasion and communication are important to our social lives, our wellbeing as well as the problems we see in the world, yet we might know surprisingly little about how all this works.

In this talk we will consider the science of persuasion and communication, we will review the impact of psychological, biological and social influences and we will consider human susceptibility to persuasion, emotional reasoning and motivated political reasoning. Most importantly, we will conclude with practical ideas to help us to become more controlled and effective communicators who can create a safe yet powerful environment for mutual exchange of ideas.

Venue: TT Liquor

Doors: 7pm / Talk starts: 7.30pm.

*Please see venue website for admission (age restrictions) or accessibility information. Our talks may be filmed for promotional purposes.
