"Is What Came Out of your Mouth, the Same Thing your Body Said? "

Because you asked,
we are bringing back our very first Leadership Blythewood speaker,
Gerald Glascock,
who says: “To some extent, practicing the social graces has become a dying art, an “obsolete” list of rules with seemingly no place in our fast-paced, high-tech world. But the truth remains: Presentation is everything. A sound execution of etiquette indicates an attention to detail, self-awareness and common courtesy—all of which make the difference in whatever you wish to accomplish.”

This presentation will break down the nuances of everything from shaking hands to analyzing handwriting, from starting a conversation to closing one; skills that will help you be more effective in your business.
