What really drives trust and customer loyalty today?  How do you get deep customer and client engagement time after time?  Dr. Josh Packard harnesses insights from sociological research to show some surprising answers about the way our society has changed in the last decade. Trust is simply not earned by being right or the best, it’s all about relational authority.

Learning Objectives:

  • Learn how the shifting nature of trust impacts every sector of our world
  • Understand how to increase your influence by leveraging the power of sociological insights.
  • Identify practices that decrease trust and skepticism, and learn how to avoid them.
