The Art of Connecting Instantly
Developing Acuity and Building Rapport
Develop key communication and rapport-building skills, and build instant connections with others through the mastery of your voice and body language.
Have you ever wanted to instantly connect with your colleagues, clients, or friends? Do you want to increase your chances of success in an interview, board meeting, or negotiation? Do you aspire to be a leader who can connect with and influence others around you?
Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) is a model for studying human behaviour and communication. NLP helps you to understand how people take in, store and process information, giving you a deeper and advanced understanding of human psychology and behaviour.
Drawing from over 30 years of experience, Professor Joel Lee will share with you frameworks and techniques from NLP to observe others and connect instantly. This course provides bite-sized and accessible lessons packed with rich insights to enable you to build rapport easily and effectively.
You will learn how body language and voice tone fit into the larger communication package. You will develop skills that will assist you in making fine observations about others and to instantly connect with them using your voice and body language. You will be able to apply these techniques immediately to improve the way you build relationships, be it in your business, organisation, or personal life.
We look forward to you joining us in this course, and taking one step closer to solving the People Puzzle!

Trainee Reviews & Testimonials
A refreshing 1 day session with lots to take home, chew on and put to practice! Prof Joel was very witty and kept us engaged throughout. Really appreciated the breakout groups and role playing that really helped in calibration and observation practice. Great for anyone looking to up their game in communicating and building rapport!
Senior Physiotherapist, HOD, Dover Park Hospice
Prof Joel has great charisma and is definitely someone who believes strongly in what he is teaching. He turns what would normally be a dry topic, into one that actively engages and captivates participants. That is not even touching upon the skill and experience he possess in this field which is clearly demonstrated in how he is able to very effectively answer any further questions. I highly recommend anyone who is remotely interested in understanding the intricacies of communication to give this course a try!
Student, NUS Law
Learning from Joel is both an enriching and humbling experience. It is rare to be able to learn such complex and relevant skills in building rapport and connections quickly through such accessible structure and delivery. He makes the concepts look and sound easy to apply, which is the hallmark of a great communicator and trainer. Thanks Joel! Kudos also to Sean for the great organisation and running of the course as always.
The Art of Connecting Instantly was a very fun and engaging course. Professor Joel Lee's witty behaviour never fails to amuse the participants, and yet in his intellectual discourse opens our minds to a new way of understanding how to connect with people. The course also promotes active participation and provides a safe space for participants to hone their skills through the practice sessions.
Student, NUS Law
The course was conducted in a good format. The content is informative enough to insure participants engagement and not too long or intensive. This helps to pique participants’ interests.
