Make Your Mark: Practical Tools to Expand Your Personal Presence

Presence. You know it when you see it. Yet did you know there are specific nonverbal skills that create "presence"? By increasing your awareness of your nonverbal communication, you can change how others perceive you. In this presentation, Rachel Beohm will give you concrete tools to communicate a positive, powerful presence.

You'll learn 1) how nonverbal communication impacts your presence, 2) what presence is, 3) the four components of presence, 4) how to move from autopilot to awareness and action with each component, and 5) concrete communication skills that help you look and feel more confident and credible.

Without presence, you have little impact on the world around you. Increase your presence and increase your influence.
