About the Workshop

If we can learn to identify and appreciate non-verbal clues, we can begin to improve our communication as a whole. This use of body language skills could impact situations such as; sales visits, interviews, presentations and normal day to day interactions where body language plays a part.

Effective communication skills are critical in the development of relationships between people and although verbal communication plays a large part in this.

Studies have shown that a proportionate amount of our message comes from not what we say, but very often the non-verbal communication behind the message.

It is clear that body language is an important, influential aspect of communication and understanding how it works is essential in the development of your personal communication skills.
