Building Your Consulting Credibility
Through Nonverbal Communication

With Dr. Jan Palmer and Dr. Neal Larsen Palmer

Over 90% of your communication is nonverbal (positive or negative). What messages are YOU sending?

What 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.

Join us 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 interactive presentation..
