About This Campaign
Hello hello everyone, my name is Nate Taylor and I help students and professionals to harness the power of nonverbal communication to increase their capacity for success as leaders and professionals. 

I am seeking to raise the remaining $1,800 to receive my body language training certification in Vanessa Van Edwards’ Body Trainer Program.


About Me

I had the honor of winning best oral presentation at the Connecticut Intercollegiate Business Plan pitch competition:
-I am a fellow for the Patricelli Fellowship for Social Entrepreneurship at Wesleyan University. This fellowship teaches practical skills, builds a community of changemakers, and forges pathways for student entrepreneurs and innovators by exploring problems and opportunities that matter to people inside and outside of academia

-I will be co-teaching the full-credit course "Perception and Influence" at Wesleyan University. Students will analyze important facets of the body and their significance in nonverbal messages. We will develop a system for analyzing body language and apply covered concepts to increase our socio-emotional development and expand our capacity for success.

-I facilitated a Body Language for Entrepreneurs workshop as part of the Fellowship. I taught participants the science behind first impressions and how to leave a powerful and lasting impact on the audience that they pitch their ideas and products to. 

-I held Body Language for Leaders workshop at City Year Miami for their central region corps members. City Year works towards bridging the gap in high-poverty communities between the support that students actually need, and what their schools are designed and resourced to provide.

I discussed how to create an unforgettable first impression, convey confidence, increase our charisma and credibility as young leaders. In addition, I will provide tools for participants to continue cultivating their presence after the workshop has ended to compliment their leadership development model. 

-I have helped two college students prepare for upcoming job interviews, where I cultivated an awareness of the image they portray to employers and how to harness their unique strengths to convey confidence, charisma, and passion

Why This Matters
-Nonverbal communication accounts for up to 93% of all communication. 7% is left to our language. Tapping into our nonverbal cues will allow us to express our most authentic selves and connect with others on a much deeper level.

-Our body is the canvas of our mind. It portrays our thoughts, feelings, emotions, and self-esteem. Understanding one's body can help us better understand ourselves.

-First impressions have a dramatic effect on our social outcomes. Weak first impressions lead to weak outcomes.  Our nonverbal cues can make or break our social interactions.

-Our nonverbal messages facilitate our ability to build relationships and influence others to create the change we want to see in the world. 

My Impact Thus Far
"Nate has helped me become more aware of my facial features and consequently I feel confident that I can effectively communicate my story through both words and expressions".
       
               -Mikaela Carty, Program Coordinator, BigMac

It was a great hands-on experience. Nate is a calming figure in the room. When we were nervous to pitch in front of each other, Nate made us feel more comfortable by providing information in a way that made sense.
       
               -Thafir Elzofri, Intern & Tutor, Upward Bound Math Science

Nate helped me break down how I wanted to portray myself and figure out who I am. It made it so much easier to answer the interview questions.
