How can you improve the impact of your presentation with the effective use of body language and voice?
Body language and voice represent the nonverbal communication channel. The lecture/workshop by Jeff Cabili, keynote speaker at Stanford University, will focus on 'How You Say It' rather than on 'What You Say'. This incredible workshop, organized by the Barcelona International Chapter and ESADE Alumni Careers, will help you improve the impact of your presentation and captivate your audience.
Nonverbal communication can reinforce what you say, but when not used effectively, it can weaken your message. The lecture/workshop will focus on the techniques of expression, including gestures, body movements, positions and postures, the voice, breathing techniques, sustaining eye contact, the use of silence, and others, with an emphasis on consistency between verbal and nonverbal communication.
The talk will also examine how nonverbal communication can be used as a tool to influence others in difficult contexts (such as lecturing to an unsettled group) and to optimize the impact of your message in stressful settings (such as job interviews and business negotiations).
You will be able to use the nonverbal communication skills (covered above) to deliver an effective short pitch (3 or 4 min) to raise money from venture capitalists or to influence potential clients. Or simply to pitch an idea to your team, colleague or boss.
Finally, don’t forget to join the Barcelona International Chapter LinkedIn group. We encourage you to use it to share new job opportunities and ideas for events. We will also use this group to share chapter news.
