How can I create a great first impression? What should I do with my hands? How should I stand? Should I use the lectern or walk across the stage? What does my facial expression say about me? How important is my body language?

Body language and non-verbal communication is key to effective leadership, effective communication and effective presentation skills.

The ability to understand, interpret and use effective body language is a skill that will enhance your presentation skills, public speaking and career. Body language is a form of communication, and it needs to be understood and practiced like any other communication skill. Whether in training, facilitation, key note speaking, job interviews or everyday communication, it is essential to understand exactly what your body is communicating to others and what other’s nonverbal communication is saying to you.

In this workshop you will learn to:

  • Understand what your body is saying about you
  • Gesture with confidence and intelligence
  • Use eye contact appropriately
  • Use the platform or stage effectively when presenting
  • Use breathing and pause to generate suspense and create impact
  • Use the frozen hand gesture
  • Look after your voice and create additional vocal variety and interest
  • Demonstrate credibility and approachability and when to use each
  • Stand confidently and avoid distracting and overusing gestures
  • Reduce the noise and distraction of unwanted nonverbal signals
