Better communication through the senses
We are a social species that evolved a brain that is driven to connect and communicate. But most of this evolution occurred hundreds of thousands of years before we had sophisticated language.
Time & Location
15 Nov 2022, 12:30 pm – 2:00 pm AEDT
About The Event
Face and expression perception, eye gaze, body language, touch and pheromones all change how we perceive what others are saying. These vital and automatic processes involved in communication occur outside our awareness and impact on the way we understand what other people are trying to communicate to us. Understanding the interaction of these signals will enable you to connect and communicate more effectively.
- Connection is key before real communication can occur
- Communication is not only verbal or written
- Most of communication occurs without our awareness
- How to communicate betterMark will give very practical advice on how to connect and communicate with a range of people.
