Dr. Amy Cuddy with Julie Lythcott-Haims

Presence: Using Body Language and the Mind to Boost Confidence, Performance Under Stress and Social Bravery

Virtual Event

By accessing our personal power, we can achieve “presence,” the state in which we stop worrying about the impression we’re making on others and instead adjust the impression we’ve been making on ourselves.  Dr. Amy Cuddy is a social psychologist, bestselling author and keynote speaker whose writing, research, teaching and speaking focus on presence and performance under stress, the causes and outcomes of feeling powerful vs. powerless, nonverbal behaviors, the delicate balance of projecting trustworthiness and strength and most recently, the psychology of bullying, by-standing, and social bravery.

Professor Cuddy feels we don’t need to embark on a grand spiritual quest or complete an inner transformation to harness the power of presence. Instead, we need to nudge ourselves, moment by moment, by tweaking our body language, behavior, and mind-set in our day-to-day lives.

Cuddy has galvanized tens of millions of viewers around the world with her TED talk about ‘power poses.’ “Your Body Language May Shape Who You Are,” the second-most popular TED Talk of all time with more than 70 million views, is focused on the enthralling science of body-mind effects. It teaches us how to use simple techniques to liberate ourselves from fear in high-pressure moments so we can perform at our best and connect with and empower others to do the same.

After earning her Ph.D. at Princeton University, Dr. Cuddy was a professor at Harvard Business School and Northwestern University’s Kellogg School of Management. Throughout her academic career, she’s been honored with some of the highest commendations for both her teaching and her research, including the Excellence in Teaching Award from Harvard University and the Scientific Impact Award from the Society for Experimental Social Psychology. Her New York Times bestseller, “Presence” has sold more than half a million copies and been published in 35 languages. Upcoming is her new book “Bullies, Bystanders, & Bravehearts” (HarperCollins), on the psychology of bullying among adults and how we find the courage and tools to stop it. Cuddy’s highly cited research on stereotyping and prejudice, nonverbal behavior and presence and performance under stress has been published in top academic journals and featured in the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Economist, Globe and Mail, NPR, BBC, and many more. Most recently Dr. Cuddy presented her research at the United Nations.
