WineRelax and enjoy the fine art of Persuasion
A beautiful 2010 Sonoma County red wine, brought to you by Arlene Dickinson.
Some vintages are aggressive and come on strong; they insist on being noticed. Others are smoother, more balanced, more confident of their worth. They persuade you to pay attention. And, with every glass, convince you of their superb quality.
Relax and enjoy the fine art of Persuasion.
BookA new approach to changing minds
At 30, Arlene Dickinson was divorced, had a high school diploma, no savings, and no idea how to feed four young children. She is now the CEO of Venture Communications, a co-star of the CBC TV hit Dragons' Den, and one of the country's most sought-after female entrepreneurs.
The secret of her journey from poverty to the corner office? The art of persuasion, as she explains with wit and unusual candour in this, her first book. Blending her own frank and highly entertaining stories with compelling social science, Dickinson explains how to master the art of persuasion, without an M.B.A., to achieve maximum success in business—and in life.
