The Engaging Speaker Series - First Impressions - via ZOOM

We establish whether or not we like someone within the first few seconds of meeting them. This judgement is fundamental in the potency of their influence over us. We gravitate towards and are influenced more by people we like, whilst resisting people we dislike. This first impression is generated from their physical appearance, posture, facial expressions, gaze, gestures, proximity to others, and vocal cues. This workshop examines these non-verbal aspects and helps you to generate a positive first impression.

The Engaging Speaker Series are a collection of short workshops delivered online via zoom which focus on specific skills to enhance your effectiveness as a speaker.

Duration: 1.5 hours
