Interesting Talks – Sam Jones on The Psychology of Authentic Body Language

I believe the large majority of body language information available is either impractical or over complicated. Who really wants to be thinking about every tiny detail, especially when the details are misaligned to you as a person!

Instead I offer you a better solution. The gap in effective body language success is not knowing, but knowing how to implement these strategies uniquely to you. And that my friends is what this talk is about. We will look at not only a fresh take on how to use your body effectively, but we will look at how YOU are going to implement it differently to everyone else.

Interesting Talks – Matt Kendall on Social Engineering and Practical Psychology

It is rare that the best person for the job is promoted, that the most suitable romantic partner is chosen and some people just seem to get away with everything. Why do you often take an instant like or dislike to someone without even speaking to them? The answer is social engineering and practical psychology.

When you know how to get along with people, life becomes your playground. Have you ever wanted to learn more about why people are the way they are and how to get more of what you want? When you start to learn about human behaviour you can start to have great influence both socially and professionally.

It isn’t the smartest and best people who get to the top, it is those who know how to get along with others! In this talk we are going to take a practical look at several areas of social engineering and practical psychology. Not only will it be interested, you are going to learn a lot that you can implement in everyday life.

• Why first impressions count
• How to extrapolate huge amounts of information from the smallest of actions
• How to generate real rapport
• Why stereotypes save you a lot of time
• How to be popular and reputation management
• The role of social media and your online persona
• Social status, what is it and how to get it
• Group dynamics and identity roles
• Conflict management
• How psychology applies in dating
• How to get people to like you

Getting along with people, building real relationships based on trust and having a great reputation will get you everywhere in life. This talk promises to not be politically correct, it will break many social norms and some people are likely to be offended. Fun times!
