Guest Speaker

Bill Achenson

“Buying Signs: A New ‘Look’ at Selling”

 

Body language accounts for more than two thirds of the impact you make in face-to-face communication. In making a first impression, it is especially powerful.

 

Whether in sales or service or management, you must project three things to initiate and maintain a long running professional relationship: trustworthiness, competence, and likeability. Yet, not one of these is communicated verbally. They are the product of nonverbal communication – body language.

 

Learn to enhance your own body language as well as how to understand the hidden messages sent by your prospects and clients. Discover how appearance, posture, gestures, facial expression, eye contact, voice, touch, and even smell impact your ability to sell successfully.

 

 

Bill Acheson is an expert in nonverbal communication. As a faculty member of the Department of Communication at the University of Pittsburgh for over 20 years and as a professional speaker since 1994, Bill has spoken to thousands of people across North America about how to use body language to communicate more effectively.

 

From the classroom to the courtroom to the conference room, Bill has worked with professionals who want to improve their bottom line performance. Find out what employees from AIG, Bayer, Deutsche Bank, Glaxo SmithKline, Merrill Lynch, MorganStanley, the U.S. Coast Guard, and the National Football League have already discovered. It’s not just what you say; it’s how you say it.
