Speak BODY LANGUAGE and get results
When you speak …
do people listen to you?
do people believe and accept you?
do people take action: adopt an idea, buy a service/product…?
In a nutshell: when you speak, do you get the results you want?
Whether it’s a presentation, negotiation, team meeting, job interview, a first date or first impression,
if you want to speak and get results you have to achieve three things:
1. Radiate authority
the audience believes you have a deep understanding of your topic.
2. Radiate passion
the audience believes you have a deep interest in your topic.
3. Interact with audience
the audience believes you have a deep understanding and interest in them.
Why do some people succeed when they communicate and others don’t?
Humans have noses like dogs when it comes to body language. We can sniff out a fake miles away. When your verbal and non-verbal signals are incongruent, you appear inauthentic. Master communicators know how to align their verbal and body language so that it has maximum impact. If you don’t fuel your words with persuasive body language it’s like driving with the brakes on.
The ole saying “actions speak louder than words” contains a lot of wisdom. If you don’t back up your words with persuasive body language, studies prove that people tend to believe what they feel (see, hear) more than the meaning of your words.*
the body never lies. Martha Graham
Moving Speaker can help you move audiences with Body Language Mastery.
Our training offers three key components of successful body language: body awareness, thought awareness, and audience awareness. Participants don’t do a lot of sitting. We get you up and moving with learning-by-doing situations so you reinforce your new skills in a motivating, supportive atmosphere.
What makes our training unique is that we don’t overload your brain with unimportant details: if your toes are pointing in this direction it means …, if you look down it means …. if you look sideways down right it means …, if your hands are in your pockets it means …. if you have to concentrate on all these possible interpretations when you speak – you would become all head, and no heart & gut, the source of authentic communication.
We do it differently.
We target your awareness. If you can become aware of what your body is saying , then you can become aware of what other bodies are saying. When you have developed this awareness – you don’t need to learn a long list of generic body language “do & don’t”s. You can’t generalize body language. Every body is different and every scenario takes place within a different context. If someone’s arms are crossed is doesn’t always mean that they are closed or crossed. It can simply mean that they are keeping themselves warm!
If you can consciously use body language to convey authority, passion and engage the audience – you have won THE most important life skill for successful leadership and communication.

Successful communication uses verbal and non-verbal languages as one expressive whole. As the poet William Yeats so poignantly captured:
O body swayed to music, O brightening glance,
How can we know the dancer from the dance?
Note: *The ‘Mehrabian formula’ from Professor Albert Mehrabian („Silent Messages“, p.75-80): Total Liking = 7% Verbal Liking + 38% Vocal Liking + 55% Facial Liking was established in situations where there was incongruence between words and expression. That is, where the words did not match the facial expression: specifically in Mehrabian’s research people tended to believe the expression they saw, not the words spoken.
