Roddy shares 5 steps you want to keep in mind to be effective at influencing people. Your clarity as to how you can help them or the organization is key to influencing your audience.
The first thing you have to do is grab their attention, and hold it until the end. The best way to influence is by thinking through what you want to achieve.
The second step is to connect with your audience. You need to make them feel like they know you and can trust you. They need to feel a rapport in order to receive the message. Understanding who you're talking to makes an enormous difference.
