From the Moote Group Workshop:
The following are testimonials from participants of the Moote Group – Workshop held on June 6-7, 2006, in Santa Ana, CA. For further information and reference, please call Steve Murow, VP, the Moote Group, at 714/751-5557 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
"Mr. Sankary is an excellent "leader," teacher, facilitator, instructor – all in one. His enthusiasm in the subject matter really set the tone. Knowing his background (attorney, mediator, educator) gave this program major credence and credibility. He was incredible. Please forward my thanks to Dr. Cialdini for certifying Myer Sankary as a presenter of POP.
I heard about Myer from a member of an association I belong to and started communications with him in coming out for an hour presentation to our Forensic Expert Witness Association monthly meeting. In speaking with him and reading his credentials and just listening to his "this is some powerful stuff" spiel I engaged him to do a 2-day seminar for our top 10 folks at the company.
Oh my gosh, he was incredible. His use of law cases, mediation experiences, current affairs, history – everything he said and did was amazing. His ability to move the course and meet the time restrictions were unique with his (beautiful) assistant holding placards in the back of the room and keeping the class on schedule. His very personal approach and charisma coupled with his tremendous character was such a welcome experience. His reference to science and Dr. Cialdini was great. So simple – now that the research is done – yet so darn powerful.
I must commend Mr. Sankary and give him as high a rating as possible. Thank you very much. We look forward to the follow-up meeting and using influence throughout our day. On behalf of the folks at The Moote Group – well done – thank you!"
Steve Murow, VP, The Moote Group
"Mr. Sankary`s workshop has provided a framework from which principles of persuasion can be understood and implemented. Prior workshop negotiation techniques have left a void as to utilize persuasion effectivity. Preparation is the key to applying these principles. He gave all of us the confidence that we can each be at the best ( Gary Spence ) at their game, should the opportunity arise. Many thanks."
Mark Hassman, CFO, the Moote Group
"Within our extremely busy – business day we forget that relationships create and support out organization. The program reminded me that the value of knowing and liking our clients is extremely important to that relationship and our success."

From the March 2006 Workshop:
The course forced me to think more deeply
about contrast and to use it to setup the context to improve the
importance and value of my services to my clients.
Diana Waters, Waters and Dickens
Persuasion is apart of our daily lives
and, for many of us as we become more senior in our careers, the
essence of what we do. This workshop challenges you to think outside
the box while at the same time having practicing new skills—a great

It has been a very informative approach
to evaluating tools/principles that leverage situations. The team
approach gives an opportunity in evaluating different perspectives
in reaching and utilizing the principles.

program for leadership in healthcare organization. Highly recommended!

I do real estate negotiation/persuasion
everyday—I came out of the seminar knowing much more!
Alan Gecht, Vice President, Corporate Reality Associates
Apparently influence is a teachable,
learnable and usable skill. All partners of law firms and boards
of directors would benefit from learning and developing.

Testimonials From Evaluations of the March 2006 Workshop:
Myer kept it moving, interspersed stories
and statistics with exercises.
Lawerence M. Braun, Partner, Sheppard, Mullin, Richter and Hampton
The content was absolutely terrific. It describes, dissects
the elephant in the room that underlies influence. The best kind
of wisdom is usable wisdom. Usable wisdom is something just outside
what you’re already doing which makes it easier to use. The
Principles of Persuasion are that

The Principles of Persuasion Seminar
solidified strategies I had been using for years and gave me new
insights into both errors I had made and new negotiating tools to
use in the future. It is an invaluable resource, providing a "pre-flight
checklist" for heading into any sort of negotiation - you are confident
going in that your strategy is as solid as it can be.
Steve Bullard, CEO of Vision Advertising
I’ve been in training for over 20 years and have never seen a
program as effective as this one. This program is different from
all others. The science provides fundamentals that have paid off
over and over again. This has been a very good bottom-line investment.
Whether your employees need help in sales, management, leadership,
or marketing, this course is a MUST.
Compaq Computer Corporation
This POP Workshop is a valuable investment in time, money and
effort. It will certainly achieve successful financial, personal,
and business goals. It’s a very powerful and sensible approach to
achieving future superior results.
The information shared in this workshop is valuable for effective
workplace interaction and relationships. It can enhance one’s sensibility
about the power of influence!
I had done extensive research on this cause prior to making the
decision to attend. The course exceeded my expectations. I believe
a workshop is valuable when I can walk away with one new skill to
apply immediately. I have six new skills that I can apply to 4 critical
situations of influence…. The icing on the cake is the fact that
the course insists upon the ETHICAL use of influencing. Great Work.
Capital One Services, Inc.
This ‘Power of Persuasion’ program has been the single most valuable
and powerful decision shaping tool I have encountered in my recent
career. The simplicity yet depth of this pithy science has enabled
me to create massive upside leverage in every situation whether
it is driving more sales revenue or marketing for my clients. I
intend to make the principles learned an integrated part of my influence
arsenal and use it with integrity as a force for good.
High Velocity, Inc.
The six principles of influence appear to be simple, but the
more we learned, the more we realized that this course is really
a tight little system that allows us to think in different ways.
This Principles of Persuasion course was excellent for our Senior
Managers, customer service directors and sales people. We saw a
measurable difference right away. The only problem is, now the word
has spread and everyone wants it.
