The Science of Body Language: How to Become a Human Lie Detector
with Vanessa Van Edwards
We are told hundreds of lies each and every day -- from advertisements, our colleagues and, of course, from our friends and family. Is there a way to know when people are lying to you? Is there a scientific way to spot hidden emotions in those around you? New research shows that yes, we can detect lies from facial expressions, body language and voice tone. In this lively presentation, Vanessa Van Edwards shares the latest research and actionable tips on lie detection in the workplace so attendees can make better hiring decisions, build better rapport and communicate more effectively. She will use case studies, videos and practical tips that can be applied immediately.
