Digital Body Language.  Humans rely on body language to connect and build trust, but with most of our communication happening from behind a screen, traditional body language signals are no longer visible — or are they? At this event, you'll hear from, Erica Dhawan, a go-to thought leader on collaboration and a passionate communication junkie, to explore her bestselling book, Digital Body Language: How to Build Trust and Connection, No Matter the Distance. Erica will share her cutting-edge research with engaging storytelling to decode the new signals and cues that have replaced traditional body language across genders, generations, and culture. With probing questions posed by author and workplace expert, Debbie Epstein Henry, Erica will reveal how when you're working online: reading carefully is the new listening; writing clearly is the new empathy; and, a phone or video call is worth a thousand emails. You’ll leave this event with strategies to turn your daily misunderstandings ― from large conferences and video meetings to daily emails, texts, IMs, and conference calls ― into communication that fosters connection, trust, and clarity in our ever-changing world.

Named as one of the top 50 management thinkers in the world byThinkers50, she is the author of two bestselling books, Digital Body Language: How to Build Trust and Connection, No Matter the Distance and Get Big Things Done: The Power of Connectional Intelligence.

    Welcome to the DEH Speaker Series!

    The DEH Speaker Series is a membership organization hosting quarterly, livestreamed, and recorded events for companies, law firms, and non-profits. For 25 years, I've hosted these events, conducting fireside chats and conversations with best-selling authors, TED speakers, and thought leaders. Here are highlight reels of our events with recent guests to give you a sense of our content and the types of guests we attract. Our focus is on topics involving careers, workplaces, women, and inclusion. The events draw hundreds to more than 1,000 participants per quarter and we've been fortunate to have more than 35 prominent law firms sponsor these events. Here's my 2 ½ Minute Sizzle Reel to learn more about how the DEH Speaker Series works.
