Mind hacks for success in the training room and in business

An IATEFL BESIG weekend workshop with Akos Gerold

Mind hacks are tricks that can help you be more successful at whatever you do. So why not use them to your advantage in the training room and in business? In this workshop, Akos Gerold will share research-based mind hacks with you that can:


  • make your language and intercultural training more effective
  • help adjust your pricing policy to increase the number of clients who sign up for your courses
  • tailor the range of services you offer to raise the likelihood of prospective clients choosing one of your services
  • help you be more persuasive when asking clients for testimonials and favours
This online workshop, which was very well received at the 28th IATEFL BESIG Annual Conference in Sitges, contains a persuasion mind hack that was not included in the version delivered in Spain in November last year.

Join us on Sunday, 6 March and hack your learners’ and your own minds for success!
