Visual Poise: How to Present Yourself

Wed., Oct. 19, 6:00-8:00 pm / $29 / One Class

Instructor: Nanci Glendening

The secret to high caliber presence is comportment—the foundation on which all good looks depend. It broadcasts your background and self-esteem. How you carry yourself tells the world about you, the company you represent, and the product or service you are selling. When you stand, walk, and move smoothly, you look more attractive. Your body looks its best, clothes fit better, and you seem more intelligent and energetic. Good posture makes you appear healthy and happy. In this two-hour workshop, we will focus on the principles of superb comportment, body language, facial expressions, and mannerisms.
