Communication Expert | Performance Trainer
Today’s executives need to do more than simply succeed: they need to stand out. Communications expert Mark Bowden explains how to use persuasive communication skills to set yourself apart, win trust, and generate profit. His trademark techniques are used by top leaders and political players around the world who want to gain an advantage—beyond words—when they speak.
Bowden received a university degree in performance in the UK, and studied the gesture-control methods of Jacques Lecoq’s Laboratory of Movement in Paris. He then went on to work with leading practitioners of movement psychology, building upon the influence techniques of Dr. Milton Erickson. Bowden is on the faculty of the International Masters of Health Leadership at McGill University, and on the faculty as the business presentation trainer for The Kellogg-Schulich Executive MBA, ranked #1 in the world by The Economist.
