Agenda:
- 6:00-7:15 p.m. - Program

Presentation:
Reading others' thoughts and feelings are critical for success in business. Most face-to-face communication is nonverbal with only 7% coming from the actual words being spoken. This session will focus on the 93%.

Learning Objectives: The objectives of this program are to teach you to identify stress (deception) in others, appear more confident, build rapport, and use positive nonverbals during a job interview. Nonverbal communication is very honest and happens instantly. This session will introduce you to the amazing world going on around you at all times. Success in business comes from seeing things others miss. Learn what you have been missing. Some of this will shock you!
