    November 28, 2014

    9 a.m.
    The Cloister Ballroom

    It’s a scientific fact that a person’s body gestures give away his true intentions.  Actually, over ninety percent of all face-to-face communication is nonverbal; thus, the silent messages of the body often reveal more than the spoken word in conveying true feelings and attitudes.  Jan Hargrave, expert in the field of nonverbal communication whose clients have included such luminaries as Bill Clinton, Kobe Bryant, Tom Cruise and Angelino Jolie.  The author of Let Me See Your Body Talk, Freeway of Love, Judge the Jury, Strictly Business Body Language, and Poker Face, she offers a wealth of detailed information concerning the “hidden messages” of the people around you as well as yourself.  Her fascinating presentation gives you the advantages you need to make in-depth character assessments during negotiations as well as an increased ability to form more successful and rewarding relationships.
