Conservators and those charged with responsibility for collections care are often required to try to change the way that most people in their institutions work and think. Yet conservators are often seen as poor communicators. This paper argues that this can change and identifies one feature of communication science, persuasion, that can be studied and learnt by conservators to increase their positive influence within the organisations in which they work.
