What Dr. Nick Morgan Talks About:
High Stakes Communications
In this talk, Nick helps executives understand why most corporate communications fail to connect with their intended audiences – and what they can do to improve these expensive efforts in marketing, branding, and messaging. When the stakes are high, you have to get the communications right, and Nick shows audiences what works in this era of 24/7 YouTube exposure and gotcha TV.
Neuroscience and Executive Presence
Nick shows why people crave authentic communications – and explains the neuroscience behind executive presence. Audiences learn how to develop their own unique personal styles that allow their voices to be heard more powerfully than they ever have before.
The Secrets of Body Language
Brain research shows that most of us make decisions based on unconscious, emotional reactions to other people’s body language. Nick reveals to audiences what body language can – and cannot – tell us about how our minds work and how our lives are really lived.
To hold someone’s attention you have to be able to tell compelling stories. Nick leads audiences in an interactive session that will have them finding their own stories, increasing their persuasiveness, and learning how to move people to action.
You really are top notch, your style, the content and the approach were exactly what was needed.
