Allan Pease is an Australian author and motivational speaker. Despite having no education in psychology, neuroscience, or psychiatry, he has managed to establish himself as an "expert on relationships".
Originally a musician, he became a successful life insurance salesman, he started a career as a speaker and trainer in sales and latterly in body language. This resulted in a popular sideline of audio tapes, many of which feature his irreverent wit.
He delivers his message in a humorous way, which motivates people to want to use these ideas immediately. In a highly entertaining, fast moving presentation, Allan takes you through powerful communication techniques and teaches you how to decode other people's behaviour - and what to do about it. He also reveals how to decode a wide range of subtle clues that appear in meetings, phone calls, negotiations and face-to-face encounters. Known worldwide as “Mr Body Language”, Allan's own record in the field of selling, motivating and training is equalled by few others. He is a born achiever, starting his career at age 10 selling rubber sponges door to door. At 17, he was the No.1 national salesman for a company selling bed linen and pots & pans. At 21, he was the youngest person ever to sell over $1,000,000 of life insurance in his first sales year.
He has addressed audiences in 60 countries, and his programs are used by businesses and governments to teach powerful relationship skills. His messages are relevant to any area of life that involves winning people over and getting them to like you, co-operate, follow you or say 'yes'. Allan – with co-author Barbara Pease - is one of the world's most successful non-fiction authors, writing 17 bestsellers including The Definitive Book of Body Language and Why Men Don’t Listen and Women Can’t Read Maps. His books have been translated into 53 languages and have sold over 25,000,000 copies. His television series and Number 1.Box Office Movie were watched by over 100 million viewers.
