What You Say Before You Speak


Although there are 86,400 seconds in a day, it takes only 10 (or fewer in this sound-byte society) to make a first impression. Your image, a combination of your appearance and behavior, has a language of its own. Because you are in charge of how you look and how you act, you also are in charge of your personal and business success. This lively, interactive, practical program shows you how clothing color, style and fit and posture, handshakes, eye contact and facial expressions are among ingredients that govern your professional presence. Participant comments include:

  • “No one should go on a job interview until they’ve heard Lillian!”
  • “I had no idea what importance color plays in my image.”  (Male engineer)
