What is body language, and why is it Important in Business? with Don Khoury, a leading authority on body language in business

Friday, February 13, 2015 from 8:00 AM to 12:00 PM (EST)

Words alone rarely reflect a person’s full meaning and motive. Studies into Body Language, or Nonverbal Communication show that over 80% of what others “hear” from our conversation is communicated nonverbally.
Learning the nuances of Body Language in business situations, in terms of your appearance, office environment and the movements and gestures of your body, is essential to any business person engaged in developing client relationships – selling, negotiating, consulting, advising and teaching.

Executive Roundtable - NYC

On May 28, 2014, Ian Cross, the Director of Center for Marketing Technology
at Bentley University joined the Chief Digital Officer to moderate
the Executive Roundtable Series: Social Media Strategy in New York City.

While social media’s importance in virtually every marketer’s toolkit is
increasing with each passing day, success has been elusive. Indeed, in a
recent survey of 395 marketers and ebusiness executives by Forrester, the
group reported that Facebook “creates less business value than any other
digital marketing opportunity”, and only 55% of companies that market on
Twitter say they’re “satisfied” with the business value they achieve.

In many ways, these findings should come as no surprise. Given the meteoric
growth of social media as a category in recent years, it’s no wonder that
executives are struggling to keep up on this dynamic sector of digital
marketing and find the key to unlocking the value of social media. Though, as
social media becomes increasingly linked to overall corporate performance,
many marketing and non-marketing executives find themselves tasked with
defining the path to success — and quickly.

During this executive roundtable session, Chief Digital Officer assembled
a group of experienced marketing professionals to explore the topic of
‘Social Media Strategy’, and discuss the issues from an executive-level
perspective. Attendees will learn best practices from recognized experts, and
share tales with like-minded colleagues in an intimate, low–pressure
