"The aim of this body language book is give you an advantage over others in the fast moving world of technology. We have moved on from communicating over the phone, where you could not see the person you were talking to, and now have video conferencing, where you can chat to several people at once and see them. With changing technologies like Skype and pod casts there is a call for a different type of behaviour to help you make the most of yourself, and get others to understand your message. Body language is another skill in your portfolio, ignore it at your peril!" Carole Railton, author of The Future of Body Language

Branding is creating a positive environment for exchange to take place.

"Business is all about exchange. Two-way exchange, at least, needs to take place - of information, products or services. This can be done over the internet, between individuals or within complex operations, such as you would find in multi-million pound property deals. Branding is creating a positive environment for that exchange to take place. YOU are the product that you are marketing, which is why there is so much power in getting the right personal brand for you. Maybe your situation at the moment is you are looking for another position, i.e. you want to exchange your services with a potential employer in exchange for a salary. Or, you might be looking for someone with expertise who is going to advise you. In this case, it is you who will be making the payment for the brand you choose." A Useful Guide to Personal Branding
