One thing we teach all of our delegates to be aware of is the infinite importance of body language.
You can have the most pristine messages in the world. But if you’re body is saying something else, then you can forget the messages – they won’t count for a thing. Your body language will do the talking for you.
And there was a corker of an example of this from Samantha Cameron and Carla Bruni today on their first day together, in which the two women attended a ceremony to mark the 70th anniversary of General Charles de Gaulle’s call to resist the Nazi occupation of France.
As required, the official photos saw them smiling and presumably getting on. But it wasn’t long before their body language said it all – they clearly weren’t!
