  • Match body language to words
  • Know how to read facial expressions
  • Interpret common gestures
  • Interpret eye contact
  • Understand power poses
  • Become aware of the differences in body language across cultures


This workshop is suitable for scientists and faculty who want to understand and use body language to become better all-round communicators.
