    10 to 10:30 a.m. | Registration and Breakfast

    10:30 a.m. to 12 p.m. | SEMINAR Part 1: Body Language Influence: How To Decode And Persuade Anyone Without Words! (3 IDCEC Hours)
    Have you ever wondered how your body language can influence the way clients think and feel about you, your business or your client relationships? This highly visual course on body language contains a large number of illustrations and videos that describe in detail various important cues to accurately decode the behaviour of others. Being able to read someone’s body language allows you to compare what they say with what they show in their gestures, body movements and facial expressions and the difference can prove invaluable to you. A lot of body language is carried out unconsciously. As you become more aware of these gestures, you can employ them in your interactions with others and achieve better results in communication. In short, you can have an unconscious effect on others by using these gestures to guide any conversation in the direction of your choice.
