What Dr. Cialdini says about Robert:
“To have Bob Slade working with you as a trainer and cooperating partner is to gain a significant competitive advantage. That is so because of his ability to provide an understanding of conceptual information with a mastery of ways to apply that information to the challenges his audience members encounter and need to overcome on a daily basis.”
