The Supply Chain and Logistics Association of Australia , Queensland Division will be holding a breakfast function on Wednesday, the 30th of May at the Queensland Cricketers Club featuring keynote speaker Anthony MacLean, National Manager - Persuasion Skills, New Intelligence.
Anthony McLean is a Persuasion Specialist who specialises in ethically getting people to do things they otherwise wouldn’t unless asked in a certain way.
Discussed and applied since the time of Aristotle and the great philosophers, persuasion is more of a science than an art today and can be applied to get people to do things with much less effort and stress.
As a practitioner, educator, consultant and speaker, Anthony takes the 60+ years of science that sit behind this discipline and applies it to the real-life business and people problems of modern day Australia.
A key problem, according to Anthony in Australian workplaces of today is having the knowledge and skills to consciously influence the decision makers, stakeholders and influencers when required.
This breakfast function will also be the official launch of the 2012 Queensland SCL Awards that are now in their fifth year and are the states’ feeder program into the Australian Supply Chain and Logistics Awards.
Sponsored by the Department of Transport and Main Roads, Strategix Training Group and apics, the Queensland SCL Awards confers recognition on the people who make up the diverse supply chain, logistics and transport industries.
