MoBar CLE Live Seminar 7.2 MCLE hours 52 YEARS OF EXCELLENCE MoBarCLE and the Professional Education Group are proud to present this quality programPersuasive David Mann’s Kansas City March 14, 2013Presentation Holiday Inn CoCo Key Resort St. LouisSkills for Lawyers March 15, 2013 Hilton St. Louis Airport The best lawyers agree: without skilled delivery, the soundest arguments fail. In this entertaining and compelling program, David Mann focuses on the goal of persuading juries and engaging witnesses by presenting complex material with the ease of a conversation. Examine the essentials of storytelling, using past masters as examples and learn how to use vocal inflection and body language to tell the story between the words. With concepts drawn from his successful career in performance and public speaking, Mann will provide you with tools for powerful, engaging presentations, incorporating role-play of opening statements and direct/ cross examination. He will also expose you to sound methods for more complete depositions, stronger closing arguments, and more illuminating client interviews. Key Points for Engaging Clients, Opponents, Jurors, Witnesses & Courts • Using voice and body to get twice the results from half the words • Engaging the jury rather than simply presenting them with facts • The four primary components of authenticity • How to construct a good story and tell it in two minutes • How to “read your opponent” and adjust accordingly You will take away from this course the ability to... • incorporate persuasive storytelling into openings statements • communicate ideas clearly, with persuasiveness appropriate to the material • translate complex legal jargon into plain language • construct powerful stories that illustrate critical aspects of the case • create a 3-way dynamic between attorney, witness, and jury • project confidence while remaining flexible • employ effective methods of rehearsal Persuasive Presentation Skills for Lawyers P-1 Send payment to: The Missouri Bar, P.O.
