Women's Council Meeting Set For Oct. 3

Wednesday, September 12, 2018

Dr. Donna Van Natten, founder and CEO of Accountability Measures will be the featured presenter for a special half-day forum hosted by the Cleveland/Bradley Chamber of Commerce Women’s Council, on Oct. 3, addressing 11 meaningful ways to improve body language and ultimately communication. 

"Dr. Van Natten has changed the way companies develop their people, driven by her research in the science behind non-verbal communication, facial expressions, gestures and behavioral intentions. Her research conjoins the cutting-edge sciences of brain chemistry, human behaviors and nutritional psychology to figure out how individuals perform at work and build solid relationships. Coupled with her dynamic personality and animated delivery, she is a national spokesperson and expert in interpreting numerous components of non-verbal communication. Her clients include executive suite coaching, motivational team building at large corporations and national key-note speaking forums<' organizers said.

Dr. Van Natten holds multiple degrees and certifications - culminating with a doctorate in educational leadership. Dr. Van Natten was awarded a Japan Fulbright Scholarship, is published in the Journal of Leadership Education and her first book, Image Scrimmage, targets the power of body language and leadership. She is “The Body Language Dr.” Dr. Van Natten has been featured multiple times in Inc. Magazine for her expertise in nonverbal communication and leadership. Recently, she was highlighted in the Chicago Tribune, Baltimore Sun and Business Management Daily for her expertise on eyes, smiles and tone of voice in leadership.

This program, held at the Chamber, is open for anyone to attend, and will begin at 8:30 a.m. with breakfast and networking, followed by the program from 9-11 a.m. Tickets are available through Monday, Oct. 1. Cost is $49 for Chamber members and $69 for non-members.
