Nota Bene: Please just come to the venue, and if anything prevents you from coming, cancel your attendance. I have 10 tickets available.

Let's learn something ... in an afterwork session! Those of us wishing to go for a drink and dinner afterwards can pick up a resto nearby.

Rumors have it that attitude is pretty much all you need. Some people believe that non-verbal communication accounts for 65%, 75% or even 90% of the impact made when you negotiate or when you make a public presentation. And those figures would be taken from experiments conducted in Protected content Pr. Albert Mehrabian and his team. Well, it is not the case.
To make it simple: Mehrabian’s studies have demonstrated that when a communicator talks about his feelings and when there are obvious inconsistencies between his words and his non-verbal communication, people would tend to pay more attention to his facial expressions. That’s all.
Now, let’s make it clear: in any pitch, attitude and non-verbal communications do matter. Of course, they do. But when it comes to convincing people, this is not what will make a difference. Hence the subject: what really makes a difference when you pitch and how concretely succeed to convince your audience.

In particular, we will see the importance of structuring your public intervention and more importantly we will see how to turn people feelings at your advantage by sharing who you really are!

Join this session and be ready to practice!
