September 17 Chapter Breakfast – Location Changed

The Oregon Chapter this year will be scheduling chapter training sessions in a variety of formats–the first one being a breakfast meeting on Thursday, September 17 at the Holiday Inn in Wilsonville (note the change in location from that previously announced).  The Holiday Inn is at 25425 SW 95th Ave., Wilsonville; located off of I-5 at the North Wilsonville/Stafford Exit (#286). Coming off I-5, head west and turn left at the stop light at 95th.

7:30 a.m. check in and breakfast / 8 – 9:30 a.m. Presentation

Chapter President Mary Rowe, in announcing the first fall program event,  said “I am very excited to be kicking off this year’s seminar series with a presentation by Sari de la Motte.  I have heard from two colleagues that this is the best presentation they have heard on communication. They both think that her message is important to not only HR Managers, but also supervisors.   Sari is in very high demand and I feel fortunate that IPMA-HR Oregon is able to bring this presentation to you.”

“The Permission Principle: Overcoming Invisible Boundaries”

How aware are you of the Permission Principle? Do you sabotage your own efforts by violating unspoken boundaries? If we don’t know what nonverbal cues to look for, we inadvertently cross the invisible line of permission. This costs us credibility, effectiveness, and eventually long-term success.

Get ready to view effective communication in a whole new light. The Permission Principle applies to presentation skills, business and personal relationships, negotiations and more. Understanding the
Permission Principle is the key to success in both the professional and personal realm.


• How to identify the invisible boundaries of individuals and groups
• How nonverbal communication assists in reading and influencing permission levels
• Simple ways to increase permission and effectiveness

Understanding nonverbal communication and how it helps navigate the area of permission is the key to increased influence in the educational, corporate, and personal realm.

The presenter, Sari de la Motte, CEO and founder of Nonverbal Solutions, engages her audience by sharing the power of nonverbal communication with relevant examples, practical applications and humor.
