    Very important topic. We always focus a lot on nonverbal communication. It is so overlooked and yet can make or break a speech. I was writing recently about how even kids should be taught nonverbal communication skills.

    Thank you for your comment. Regarding children, I’m also fascinated by the subject of autistic children, some of whom have a difficult time reading body language. I like to think that all of the social science we have available to us can help kids and families who struggle with that issue.

    Best wishes,

    Brad, many thanks for this very impressive and concise series. I have been training senior executives in Asia for the past 22 years and find many of the ideas you express and expound upon require slight adjustment for the local cultures. Nonetheless, even with that, the audience leaves exhilarated and asking for more. I also combine audio and video recording of the presenters in order for them to view their performance at their leisure either at home or at work. The great majority find this a superb way to increase their professionalism never loosing sight of the skills they learned through your method. Many thanks for the enormous amount of amount of effort you contributed to this series, and of course, for making it available to those of us fortunate enough to find your blog.
