Midwest’s largest green industry convention snags body language guru as Keynote. Janine Driver, the New York Times Best Selling author of YOU SAY MORE THAN YOU THINK (Random House), and most recently YOU CAN’T LIE TO ME (HarperOne) has been selected as Keynote for CENTS Marketplace & University next January 7-9, 2015 at The Greater Columbus Convention Center. Ms. Driver will present her keynote on Thursday, January 8, 2015, then follow with a breakout session and book signing.

“Janine Driver is a renown author, speaker and visionary, and we know she will captivate the convention participants with her work on interpreting body language cues in business,” explains Kevin Thompson, executive director of CENTS and its sponsor, the Ohio Nursery and Landscape Association. “It’s really a credit to the convention that we were able to retain this level of talent.”

A media expert for NBC’s TODAY Show, 20/20, CNN, Anderson Cooper and the Dr. Oz Show, Driver is founder of the Body Language Institute program that teaches executives, sales professionals, and others such as CENTS Marketplace & University participants on how to use body language techniques to build executive presence, maximize selling skills, and create and deliver winning business presentations. A previous law enforcement officer within the United States Department of Justice, she trained over 60,000 lawyers, judges, and law enforcement officers within the ATF, CIA, FBI, and the Netherlands Police how to read body language and detect deception. Her clients include such companies and associations as Coca-Cola, Procter and Gamble, Pricewaterhouse Coopers, Lockheed Martin and many others.

CENTS Marketplace & University draws thousands of green industry professionals to its business and education convention each year.
