WEO Meeting on 01/21/15: 

Rock Star Communication for Women Entrepreneurs

==>> Register for this meeting here.

The Women Entrepreneurs Organization of SW Washington is proud to present keynote speaker Sari de la Motte's Rock Star Communication for Women Entrepreneurs at the January 2015 meeting.

Sari de la Motte is an expert in nonverbal communication, but warns us that there is no “secret code” that tells you what the people around you might be thinking and feeling. However, what you're saying about yourself and others is communicated nonverbally all the time, so she asks, why not get freakin’ awesome at it? Sari de la Motte owns FORTE, where she and her team train people to increase their nonverbal intelligence, and in this exciting presentation, Sari will present the communication strategies for women entrepreneurs to be seen as powerful and authoritative.

This meeting will also feature an educational Toolbox by a member plus two member presentations.

About the keynote speaker:

Bold, with a wicked sense of humor, Sari tells it like it is. 

While on her way to get a doctorate in Piano Pedagogy, Sari’s music professor recommended she attend a nonverbal communication workshop. This wasn’t a “body language” seminarundefinedno kooky stuff like how to detect lying or what it means when someone’s arms are crossed. This was the real deal. She recognized that superior nonverbal communication skills lead to self-awareness, authenticity, and charisma. She was hooked. So she chucked her plans and her two music degrees and devoted herself to the study of nonverbal communication. (She’s a bit impulsive like that.) 

Twelve years later she’s gone from classical pianist to executive coach and trial consultant. Sari is a sought-after keynote speaker and seminar leader. She assists legal teams on high profile cases throughout the United States, working one-on-one with attorneys to hone their messages and communicate with jurors, judges and opposing counsel. Because of her unique ability to help attorneys communicate their real selves, she has been dubbed “The Attorney Whisperer.” 

Sari has been a featured speaker for the Inner Circle of Advocates, an invitation-only group consisting of the top 100 trial attorneys in the United States. She’s a featured columnist for Oregon Criminal Defense Lawyer’s Magazine, Oregon Defense Attorney, and has provided CLEs for the Oregon State Bar, Lewis and Clark Law School and various state association of justices around the country. Sari is regularly interviewed on TV, radio and in print, and has appeared in The Atlantic, Huffington Post, The Oregonian, Willamette Week and others.
