Who makes decisions? How do you get your voice heard?

Learn how to identify decision makers and gain the skills to influence them on the issues you care about. Stage 3 is recommended for Brownies and Guides.

Here's a taste of the activities you can look forward to trying at this stage. Ask your leader about all the things you'll need to do to earn this badge.

Persuasive performers - Everyone cares about something. Figure out what it is you care about, get creative and influence others to care too.

Believe it or not - Getting your facts right is really important when you’re trying to influence someone. Use facts to back up your points and see if you can influence your friends!

Decisions, decisions - Decisions are made all the time by lots of different people. Know who makes what decisions and who to ask to make things happen! Take a look at this activity for a sneak peek at our influence skills builder.

Make my voice louder - Want to make something good happen but don’t know where to start? Find out more about pressure groups, how you can be involved and make a positive change!

Comeback club - Want people to agree with you? Practise the art of persuasion and see if you can influence anyone to agree with you.
