Listen to the episode

Richard Newman is the Founder of Body Talk, a business that helps people improve their communication and impact. In the past 23 years his team has trained over 120,000 business leaders around the world. One client gained over $1 Billion in new business in just one year using Richard’s techniques, winning 100% of their new business pitches.

When Richard was 18, he started his mission to discover the core principles of communication. As part of this mission, he lived in the foothills of the Himalayas with Tibetan monks who spoke no English. They had to communicate non-verbally to understand each other. He then worked as a professional actor before becoming a communication coach and keynote speaker.

Richard’s research on non-verbal communication was published in the Journal of Psychology. His study proved that you can increase your leadership ratings by 44% and win 59% more votes in an election by changing a few simple behaviors. He has also won the coveted Cicero Grand Prize Award for Best Speechwriter of the Year. His new book ‘Lift Your Impact’ explores how you can transform your mindset, influence and future to elevate your work, team and life.
