What to Watch for during the October 11th GOP Debate

New York, NY; October 11, 2011:

- What’s so appealing about Michelle Bachmann?

- Why does Mitt Romney make us feel slightly uneasy?

- How has Rick Perry become so popular so fast?

The answers are not in what the candidates say, but in the way they communicate. Communications expert Peter Meyers, who has advised CEOs, politicians and diplomats all over the world for more than two decades, says that the style of the candidates’ communication is just as important as the substance in the upcoming debates. He’s even making the bold claim that he can predict the winner of the nomination based on each candidate’s communication skills – and he has the evidence to back it up.  

“Every election for the past twenty years has gone to the stronger communicator,” says Meyers. “The body reveals what the candidate conceals. They might lie to the public with their words - but their body will always tell the truth.”

Peter Meyers, along with former radio host Shann Nix, is co-author of a new book, AS WE SPEAK: How to Make Your Point and Have It Stick (Atria).   Based in San Francisco, Peter is also the founder of Stand & Deliver Consulting Group, a company that trains leaders and their teams worldwide to achieve optimal levels of performance when speaking and presenting. He and his coaches (who include actors and theater directors in the Bay Area) have trained thousands of executives in 23 countries for businesses including Cisco Systems, OMX, Hewlett Packard, Nestle, Firmenich, UBS, Bank of America, and BlackRock/iShares.

AS WE SPEAK is not about just making you a slightly better speaker. It is about transforming your level of influence.
