Understanding body language

Online event
Wednesday, 14 February 2024
1:00 pm – 2:30 pm (UK time)
    • Samantha Ridgewell ACII, Managing Director, Empower Development
  • Professional Speaker Programme

In this IIL presentation, Samantha Ridgewell helps you understand your body language, what affects it, how others might perceive it and how to use your body language in high-stakes situations and when presenting to support your messages and give them more impact.

We know that our words alone are often only part of the equation when we are communicating. Our tone and our body language play a huge part in how people understand our messages and often, what our bodies are saying when we aren’t the one speaking can have a real impact on outcomes in our conversations and relationships.

In critical situations, making subtle, conscious changes to how we sit, stand, use our hands, manage eye contact and use our voice can add up to big differences in outcomes and perceptions.

Learning objectives:

  • Communicating with interest and enthusiasm
  • Portraying confidence (even when you aren’t feeling confident!)
  • Checking how messages are received by others
