I Created a New Job Category - Body Language Expert over 20 Years Ago - Some things your can do as a body language expert. How to use your body language expertise.

Here are some of my rough notes from correspondence with the author of a book that he is writing on interesting and unusual jobs using your passion.

What a great idea for book. I often have people ask me what do you actually do as a body language expert.
I created a career as a body language expert. I use my background and education in nonverbal communication in many ways.  I design and conduct speeches and training for companies, 
Consult with businesses on everything from hiring, Interviewing, detecting deception in employee and or vendors. I write books, and work with National and International media as one
of the top authorities on body language.

For example in the past two weeks I
·         Gave two workshops for business owners (companies with profits of 200,000 to several billion dollars) on ways they can use body language to lead and manage their employees, negotiate, and select their employees.
·         Was asked by the Today show to tell them whether a funny party trick to detect deception that is popular on the internet had any validity or research to back it up. (It didn’t, but it is still a fun trick.)
·         Did my weekly body language analysis for Life & Style of celebrity couple photos.
·         Met with several one-on-one coaching clients including several business owners.
·         Worked with a client designing a media interviewing course for Emergency Physicians who have to give crisis media interviews.
·         Was interviewed by several media outlets including a story on Chronemics, (the study on our perception of time) effects how customers feel waiting to be served.
·          Met with producers for a reality show called Kim of Queens and gave them body language tips for their guests on the show.
·          Wrote a newsletter with an article on gestures and several other articles.
·         Prepared for a three day workshop I am doing next week on Presentation Skills
·         Wrote other blog posts you may want to check out many in response to questions I get from my clients.
·         Began research for a set of lectures I am doing for The Great Courses lecture series.   
·         Did some “secret shopping” at stores to customize two presentations I will be doing for a Rent to Own Association.
·         Prepared for a speech on body language and first impressions I am doing soon at Johnson and Wales University. It has been a busy two weeks.  

I have website, a YouTube channel, blogs and more. You can google me or link below.
