Quick Summary

How To Kill Your Body Language Frankenstein: In today’s world, communicating effectively is more important than ever.  Misunderstandings cause real problems in personal and professional relationships.  In this presentation I share a simple concept that is helping thousands of people around the world decode body language properly.

Target Audience

Anyone who wants to learn about, and better understand, the body language telling them what’s really going on during business meetings, in social gatherings, and with family interactions.

I teach CEOs and startups how to get past the confusion their misunderstanding of Body Language may be causing, and equip them with tools, that if used properly, will:

1- Help build and reinforce business, social, and family relationships.

2- Help decide whether or not you’re wasting your time with a client or prospective client.

3- Help decide if someone is not telling you the truth or if they’re just uncomfortable.

I have spoken on this topic to a wide array of industries—mortgage bankers, realtors, financial advisors, business consultants, small business associations, and international relief organizations.

Possible Formats

This presentation can be delivered as a Talk, Workshop, or Half Day Seminar.  The presentation can range from 30–120 minutes, depending on your needs.  The ideal presentation length is one hour.

Intended Outcomes

  • Audience members will realize why most of the body language information acquired and used by the average person is incorrect.
  • Audience members will learn the non-verbal cues to watch for that will give them a better understanding of what the people around them are thinking.
  • Audience members will learn to spot the subtleties of someone misunderstanding them.
  • Audience members will learn a framework that will give them a more indepth understanding of their own body language, as well as the body language of those they work with and socialize with.
  • Audience members will be equipped with several very important body language tools they can use immediately.
