John Taylor kept a group of West Jordan business owners highly engaged as he demonstrated and explained the advantages of professional body language in business. The presentation included the understanding and practice of necessary skills like body posture, hand movement, eye contact and more.
“I thought it was great! I think it’s good to be aware of your body language and how much of our communication is not just our words,” comments Aisza Wilde, president of the West Jordan Chamber of Commerce. “This workshop was a real eye-opener. I believe all the information John shared was valuable. I know I’ll be paying closer attention when speaking to and listening to others.”
