How can you tell when someone is being untruthful with you?  How we wish we could reliably tell when someone is trying to “pull the wool over our eyes”! Wouldn’t it be great if we could see through their deception and avoid being duped? In this presentation, Dr. Janet Larsen Palmer and Dr. Neal Larsen Palmer, principals of Communication Excellence Institute and nationally known specialists on nonverbal communication, share the latest research on lie-detection through body language. Starting with an analysis of President Clinton’s infamous “I did not have sexual relations with that woman” statement, the Palmers will show you ways to improve your odds of spotting a liar. You will also see how the pros analyze a videotape for deception. The Palmers coach university presidents, lawyers, business leaders, expert witnesses, politicians, fundraisers, and motivational speakers on persuasive nonverbal techniques, and on how to read motives in others more accurately.
