Captivate Everyone You Meet and Never Be Forgotten,
Overlooked or Interrupted Again

By:  Vanessa Van Edwards

Upcoming Live Event:  1 Hour

Date:  Tuesday, February 25, 2020

Time: 12:00 – 1:00 pm

Overview:

Do you feel awkward at networking events? Do you wonder what your peers really think of you? Do you wish you could decode people? If yes, then you need to learn the science of people.

As a human behavior hacker, Vanessa Van Edwards created a research lab to study the hidden forces that drive us. And she’s cracked the code. In this keynote, blending powerful research with hilarious stories, Vanessa shares shortcuts, systems, and secrets for taking charge of your interactions at work, at home, and in any social situation. These aren’t the people skills you learned in school.

Just like knowing the formulas to use in a chemistry lab, or the right programming language to build an app, Vanessa provides simple ways to solve people problems.

You’ll learn:

  • How to work a room: Every party, networking event, and social situation has a predictable map. Discover the sweet spot for making the most connections.
  • How to read faces: It’s easier than you think to speed-read facial expressions and use them to predict people’s emotions.
  • How to talk to anyone: Every conversation can be memorable—once you learn how certain words generate the pleasure hormone dopamine in listeners.

When you understand the laws of human behavior, your influence and impact will increase significantly. What’s more, you will improve your interpersonal intelligence, make a killer first impression, and build rapport quickly and authentically in any situation—negotiations, interviews, parties, and pitches. You’ll never interact the same way again.
