Gerard O’Dea, a health care training professional from Great Britain recently attended a Verbal Defense & Influence Instructor Class at the Mall of America.

He is the first international Verbal Defense & Influence Instructor that we have certified. He thoroughly enjoyed the class and couldn’t wait to get back to Great Britain to begin training with our material.

Within days of his return, Gerard began incorporating SHOWTIME, the Universal Greeting, Beyond Active Listening, and the Persuasion Sequence into his classes.

He especially liked the modification of the Golden Rule to the Platinum Rule that states that “We treat others as we would like to be treated under the same circumstances.” See a photo of his flip chart featured below. It should look familiar.

Best wishes to Gerard on his efforts to spread our message to Great Britain and beyond.
