Influence is the foundation of leadership and is paramount to lead and bring change that will have a lasting impact on an organization. Communication is a must to develop influence. Nonverbal communication is major element in successful communication, which is why I leveraged my skills as a former U.S. Army Military Police Officer and special investigator in Europe and Bosnia-Herzegovina to provide useful tips and techniques through body language interpretation to enhance communication skills and build influence with others. My keynotes and workshops are relevant for any workplace environment and industry as everyone must possess communication skills to achieve long-term success.

Lead Without Speaking – The Importance of Nonverbal Communication
You cannot achieve anything of significance without the help of others. Solid communication skills are paramount if you desire to gain buy-in from your colleagues, leadership, friends, and family; however, your words are only part of your communication repertoire. Studies show that 55% of communication is nonverbal and two people will signal over 800 nonverbal cues over the course of a thirty-minute conversation. That’s why I developed a highly entertaining and informational one-hour keynote that teaches the audience the basic principles and application of body language and techniques that can be used immediately to enhance communication and influence
1. How to use body language to determine a person’s level of comfort, agreement, and authenticity.
2. Understanding how your “vibe” affects others and alters the human dynamics of a situation.
3. Learn how to leverage nonverbal cues to enhance communication skills.
“Erick is a wonderfully engaging speaker. He gave me a lot to think about and realize my path both on a work and personal level."
