Mark Bowden is back!

It sounds weird to say this: But this guy makes you feel at home when you chat to him. Yes, I know we’re all at home already — he’s curious, he uses your name when he talks to you, he asks questions, he nods, he does all the things to make you feel safe and ready to contribute.

I spoke to Mark in Episode 102 of the First Time Facilitator podcast, and it’s the #1 most downloaded episode of all time!

So, I brought Mark back on the show, to share how we can use our body language to create engagement and connections quickly, in the virtual world.

The answer is more reassuring than you think.

From my perspective - he’s been there, done that but my favourite thing about Mark is how funny, down to earth and comfortable he is to be around.

With our Virtually Possible community opening last week, I also decided to hand over the microphone to the group, and let them ask Mark some questions.

A big thanks to those from VP who joined live and felt comfortable coming off mute to ask Mark a question, you kept the fabulous group interview going, I salute you!
