He has been featured on national and international news outlets, such as CNN, MSNBC, the Associated Press and Voice of America. He has written a book entitled, "Impressive First Impressions: The Most Important 30 Seconds (And 30 Years) of Your Career" and today he will be talking to you all about just that. In this session, you will be presented with research and tools to enhance your own first impressions. Research shows that it takes people 30 seconds (or less) to form many impressions about you. Your impression serves as a major cornerstone of influence, as it determines the tempo of subsequent interactions—and repeat impressions brands your career for decades beyond that! The impact of first, and repeat, impressions can lead to millions in earnings (think CEOs and Hollywood celebrities) or spark wars and genocide (think diplomacy and dictators). Yes, perception is reality. This session presents you with research and tools to enhance your impression and influence others.About TEDxIn the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organised events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organised events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organised TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organised.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
