A crash course on body language and how to apply it to create great connections and great sales.

Here is what to expect from The Magic of Body Language. There’s a massive difference between theoretical and applied human behavior. As a master mentalist for over 20 years, Rich has a very unique approach and real world understanding of how to read a person… and more importantly, how to influence someone based on the information gleaned. Now he’s sharing the secrets to human behavior so you can be a sales and influence wizard.

Rich will provide your staff with essential tools for reading people and knowing how and when to create a “game plan” in real-time for any situation to resolve issues, learn the truth, save valuable time or sale anything! Rich has also helped legal council evaluate the jury in high profile court! As a natural body language wizard, he’s learned what tools are useful for real life application.

There’s three program formats


“The Magic of Body Language: Unleash Your Senses” covers how to understand the rules of body language and influence. The program goes far beyond body language and dives into strategy in sales, psychology in marketing, NLP and much more. We can tailor a keynote program from 90 minutes to over 2.5 hours. The full program shows how the two sciences of body language or influence work together and dives much deeper into the area of “what to do with this information.” It’s in depth, real-world application perfect for any retreat, staff training, convention or company meeting.

For a smaller taste of “The Magic of Body Language: Unleash Your Senses” Rich’s 30-60 minute presentation covers one area – body language and how it affects influence. The golden rule of influence is observe first. Therefor, this presentation dives into reading people and saves influence for another training day. From knowing what someone’s intention is from a simple introduction to realizing your own unintentional message, this is a crash course on the real-world workings of the strategy of body language. This is ideal training for smaller business meetings, staff training or company retreats.

A simple introduction

Rotary groups, staff meetings and schools might need a short taste of what’s possible. If you are a regional company or group looking for a short 15-30 minute talk about this specialized topic, inquire to see if Rich can make an appearance for your organization, club or company meeting. You will be given an introductory understanding of the scope of the larger program as well as a full takeaway of the strategy of reading people. The body language will focus primarily of the introduction, which is the first point of contact and chance to observe someone’s real intention, fear, excitement or control.
