Communicate with Confidence: Voice and Body Language Techniques for Lawyers

Words are the tools of the legal trade but they account for a very small portion of an overall message. Although the overwhelming percentage of human communication is nonverbal, many lawyers do not receive training in this area. Would you like to hone the effectiveness of your body language, tone of voice, and inflection? 

This session will provide tips for improving the vocal and non-verbal aspects of your personal communication style when giving a presentation, negotiating in the boardroom or making your case in court.

Topics include:

  • “Performance skills” of advocacy that make you an engaging speaker, including strategies for:
    • dealing with stage fright and boosting confidence;
    • harnessing your vocal power;
    • creating empowered and relaxed body language; and
    • keeping your audience engaged. 
  • “Rules” of improvisation for more effective communication, including strategies for:
    • thinking on your feet in the courtroom;
    • switching tracks in a client meeting; and
    • maintaining poise in difficult situations and presentations.


Presenters:

Katrina Dunn, Artistic Director, Touchstone Theatre and Touchstone Training, Vancouver

Bob Mann, Manager, Discipline and Appeals, Dalhousie University, Halifax
