About Our Presenter

After a boy threatened to kill her with a machete, Lynne Franklin decided to learn everything she could about persuasion.

Lynne is a “neuroscience nerd.” She studies how the brain works and how this affects behavior. Lynne takes a practical—and humorous—approach to brain science and business communication. She sets this goal for people who attend her programs: they laugh, learn, try something new, and walk away with at least one new action they can take now to improve their lives.

As principal of Lynne Franklin Wordsmith (since 1993) she works with organizations that want to use persuasive communication to increase their performance, productivity and profits. Lynne wrote the book Getting Others to Do What You Want. She is a member of the National Speakers Association.
