Your Consulting Credibility
Through Nonverbal Communications
With Dr. Jan Palmer and
Dr. Neal Larsen Palmer
Over 90% of your communication is
nonverbal (positive or negative). What messages are YOU sending?
makes some consultants able to get their ideas enthusiastically accepted, while others are
bypassed? Why are some consultants more believable than others? How do smart
leaders in finance and technology gain people’s confidence? The answer is by
harnessing the power of nonverbal communication! People in your business
and professional life are far more influenced -- positively or negatively -- by
how you communicate nonverbally rather than by the words you say.
on September 12, as Drs Janet Larsen Palmer and Neal Larsen Palmer, principals of the
Communication Excellence Institute and nationally known experts on nonverbal
communication, share practical techniques you can use to stand, gesture, and
reach out to others nonverbally for greater impact and persuasiveness.
All are welcome, not just IMC members. This will not only be a great learning
experience, but also an opportunity for you to network with your fellow
consultants and other self-employed professionals in the Greater Orange County
area. You’ll be excited to try out everything you learn in this highly
