On a bit of a different note, today we're exploring body language in events! Because at its core, the events industry is all about people, and relationships between people. Attendees, suppliers, planners - everybody has a part to play. And everybody is, at the end of the day, human. Which is why we're very excited to have a conversation about the power of body language in events, and how it can be used for networking and interviewing.
So, as usual, we brought out the big guns. Joining our amazing hosts Lindsay Martin and Alex Plaxen are Leon Cardenas and Stan Walters. Leo helps sales teams improve their sales using body language techniques. And Stan works with and trains risk management professionals, law enforcement, intelligence agencies, and elite military units on how to accurately spot deception and ask the right questions that will uncover the truth, clear criminal cases and even save lives.
