Event Registration: Non-Verbal Communication Seminar

Date: Wednesday, April 24, 2013
Location: **UPDATED** W-104 Sy Classroom
Time: 3:30 - 5:00 p.m.

Learn how to sell without talking! This seminar will focus on using body language to effectively communicate your verbal message, whether it be pitching your next startup or presenting to a board of directors, and on how to read what others are “saying” back. Nonverbal communication can reinforce what you say, but when not used effectively, it can weaken your message. This talk will focus on a few techniques of expression, including gestures, body movements, positions and postures, the voice, sustaining eye contact, and the use of silence to get your message across.

Presenter Jeff Cabili has worked in the corporate world for over two decades, holding management positions for global enterprises such as Hewlett-Packard, Numetrix, Sopra, Diwan, Memorex and Vicinity. He holds a MBA from the Wharton Graduate School, University of Pennsylvania and a MS in Chemical Engineering from the National Polytechnic Institute of Grenoble, France. He has conducted workshops and given talks on the topic for the last 24 years in several countries He teaches several courses and workshops on nonverbal communication at Stanford University.

An interview with Michael DeLapa (MBA '85)

Michael DeLapa (MBA '85)

What are your causes?

Environmental health, land use policy, ocean conservation, energy and climate, Monterey County politics, public participation in policy-making, youth sports, in particular beach volleyball.

How do you contribute?

I co-founded three environmental nonprofits: LandWatch Monterey County, a land use and social advocacy group; the Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary Foundation, a "community foundation" for the Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary; and Sea Studios Foundation, an environmental film, video, and social media organization. I also launched Environmental Defense Fund's California Fisheries Fund, serving as it's first fund director, and served on the board of directors of Save Our Shores. I'm currently an executive coach and strategic advisor to the new Berkeley Energy and Climate Institute.

What are important lessons you learned?

Have fun. Be challenged. Start a business or nonprofit with people you enjoy spending time with. Give generously of yourself. Coach kids sports as much as possible. Be persistent, but be patient. Don't do anything just for money. Love what you do.

What are your favorite social innovation resources?

Other social and private sector entrepreneurs. They're always thinking.

Any last thought you would like to share?

Stanford Business School and the Public Management Program provided a great educational foundation and professional network. It gave me the confidence to try a lot of different things in my career without fear of failure. I'm also thrilled that the new business school left the two sand volleyball courts alone. I continue to enjoy competitive games there a couple times a week.
