DISCOVER HOW TO BUILD THE RETAIL STORE
“Send someone flowers who would never expect it”
WHAT IS THE EPISODE ABOUT
Vanessa Van Edwards is a Behavioural Investigator who specialises in the psychology behind what makes people behave in the ways they do. A few years back Vanessa joined me on the podcast to discuss how retailers can use charisma and body language to sell just about anything to anyone and why it’s important to be the perfect blend of approachable and knowledgable when it comes to sales.
This has become one of my most listened to episodes, with dozens of retailers writing in to tell me how much value they gained from Vanessas insights. Especially when we start stepping through how to spot a shoplifter simply by watching their body language!
