There’s a set of very effective hand gestures used by public speakers which also help trainers when they’re facilitating. 

Come to our session on October 14, and you’ll get a chance to practice them.

As a preview of what we’ll focus on, take a look at this 5-minute video:  Best Hand Gestures for Your Public Speaking

Have you ever been to a training session and learned some great things you were excited to apply back on the job—and then lost track of them?  It happens to all of us. But it won’t happen at this session, because we’ll do so much practice that you’ll walk out of the session using the gestures right away.

So come to the Trainers’ SIG and: 

  • Increase your repertoire of hand gestures
  • Build some muscle memory, so you start using them right away
  • And meet some people!  (This is our first live event since the pandemic began!)

We look forward to seeing you there!
