This workshop explores the importance of body language. Taking good and bad examples from world leaders, you’ll learn the necessary skills to help your business.

Explore the hidden meaning behind Obama’s handshake, understand Trump’s pincer grasp, spot signs of submission, or even a lie.

This workshop will give you the edge on negotiations, high pressure meetings and interviews. Look at who gets it right, and who gets it very wrong, and take away tips from the FBI, Met Office and top psychologists. In one short session, learn to observe and untie the unspoken language of leaders.  

What you'll learn: 

  • Evaluate the gestures of global leaders and interpret the true meaning of their words 
  • Demonstrate clear non verbals that instantly establish trust 
  • Demonstrate clear non verbals that instantly communicate authority 
  • Learn to identify signs of nervousness, hesitation, reluctancy or even deception 
  • Increase your ability to read and understand an audience, a client or colleagues
  • Avoid pitfalls that can give inaccurate and undesirable impressions of your intention
