Closing the deal

Oh we do love a good TED Talk, and it just so happens that Trevor Abrahmsohn, managing director of Glentree International and indeed one of Fabric’s founders is stepping up to the lectern in his very own TED-style talk next week, as part of the Centre for Jewish Life‘s Transformational Tuesdays.
The subject of the evening is the art of closing the deal. But if you’re not remotely business minded, don’t think this isn’t for you. Trevor explains: “When I say deal, it could easily apply to personal relationships, redeeming a loan or something as generic as changing lanes in a traffic jam. It all involves relationships with humans and getting the best out of any situation, however fraught.”

Drawing on his impressive 40 years’ experience of dealing with said humans, Trevor has developed what he calls a home spun technique that he’s proud to claim you won’t find written in any text book. An elder statesman in his industry, Trevor puts much of his success down to his knack of opening doors with his very own ‘universal key’. Now, this might sound slightly Dungeons and Dragons, but sceptics need only look at Glentree’s unprecedented low fall out rate on deals agreed to know that this elder statesman really is onto something. We don’t know about you, but we need to get our hands on that key!

Luckily, Trevor is willing to share his knowledge and importantly, the secret that, until now, has been the preserve of his company’s members. The question is, can you afford not to go? If you want to be better at what you do and more socially successful to boot, head down to the centre on Tuesday 4 March, 7pm for a 7.30 start. Inspiring stuff!

Tickets are £8 each and a buffet supper is provided. 020 7495 6089; shira@thecjl.org or book online
