Mark Bowden is a global authority on nonverbal communication. Voted #1 Body Language Professional in the world for two years running makes him a sought-after expert and incredibly engaging keynote speaker.
Mark’s work is consistently invaluable to sales and leadership teams, CEOs of Fortune 500 companies, and prime ministers of G7 powers.
His Tedx Talk reached millions and in my opinion, is one of the most engaging Ted Talks ever delivered. It perfectly encapsulates Mark’s expertise as Body Language Professional and his exceptional Public Speaking skills.
He is a bestselling author of 4 books on the subject of body language and human behaviour, with his first book Winning Body Language now translated into five different languages.

What have we discussed with Mark:

  • Am I an authentic person?
  • There are situations like creating video content or live interviews. where my body language is animated like in my videos, and there are moments when sit and talk still.
  • Which version of me is the authentic Raf?
  • Turns out that I (and you as well) are like diamonds!
  • I was curious about how can leaders build more trust through their body language. Mark explained, using my wrestling background, what is the body language of calm and assertive.
  • As we are spending more and more time leading people remotely, I was wondering how can managers build more trust and credibility on video calls.
  • Mark demonstrated how can you adjust your settings to be more engaging and likeable, therefore more trustworthy.
  • I’d like to become a highly engaging speaker that moves people, so I asked Mark what’s the best place to start mastering our public speaking skills. “There is a way better way than starting with words”.
