SIM-Portland January Meeting: "Influence, Persuasion and Negotiation"
University Club of Portland

Martin gives you stories, studies, humor and data from the stage that teach and inspire attendees to look at influence, persuasion and negotiation in a very different way. He mastered methods for determining objective probabilities with the best strategies for success in transactions and disputes needed in the information economy. But this was not enough. His research then focused on tempering this objective approach with understanding human behavior and brain function. The result: we do well when we know our choices in how we communicate our needs to the world.

After obtaining his law degree he was recognized by his client, Ryder, with the RISE Award for information systems excellence.

Martin authored three books on influence, persuasion, negotiation and technology.

Speaking and offering workshops to start-ups, Fortune 500 companies, Am Law 100 firms, trade associations, strategic investment associations, universities, non-profits, governments and healthcare providers, Martin also presented to hundreds of attorneys as: a Board Member of the Oregon Law Institute at Lewis and Clark College of Law, a speaker for the Washington State Bar Corporate Counsel Section, and as Chair of the Technology Law Section of the Oregon State Bar.
