Gilan and his team at The Influence Institute believe that everyone has ideas, products or services that deserve attention.

“We want to empower people with the ability to get the buy-in, agreement or support they need from others, so they can reach their highest success”, says Gilan.

Gilan creates unique learning experiences that help people unleash their influence. He teaches how to apply a working knowledge of influence and persuasion to real-life practical situations, to be able to lead, sell, negotiate, market and inspire on a new level.

As part of Gilan’s distinctive presentation style, he interactively demonstrates a remarkable ability to decode people's thoughts and to influence them. He demonstrates how through psychology, non-verbal communication and presentation, you can increase your ability to positively and ethically increase your influence ability.

Amazing. It's just actually amazing.
