We all influence people all day long... mostly unintentionally... for either a positive or a negative outcome. We even influence others when we do nothing... by reinforcing their notions about us as colleagues, business leaders, parents, etc. In the business world, if you wish to influence others then it's absolutely critical that you build credibility as a leading expert or authority on your subject in your market.

On Aug. 8, Brian Duvall will reveal two universal laws of human behavior that we must leverage if we wish to reach Expert status, build credibility and trust, and influence people with positive intention. He will also share some of the online tools used in his practice (including Google Analytics and Social Media) to help clients “Amp Up Their Influence.”

Currently the chief executive officer of Duvall Media, Brian has been helping businesses grow, extend their reach and amp up their influence since the mid-1980s when he was a producer/director on award-winning corporate video projects throughout the east coast. He later served as the CEO to two chambers of commerce where he helped launch more than 200 small businesses, led the restoration of the Carriage House at Longwood Park and was named one the region’s “Top 20 Under 40” in 2002. He went on to serve as the CEO of an international extreme sports company where he launched a popular blog with a global readership, built a national retail network and opened new markets in Mexico, Brazil and Argentina.

Delta Dental of Virginia will be the sponsor for the August luncheon, which begins at noon at Hotel Roanoke and is open to the business community.
