Marsha Timothy and standing akimbo

Someone once told me that an incredible 80 per cent of communication was achieved through body language (rather than talking).

But body language can be negative as well as positive and you’ve got to be careful to get it right.

Perhaps the worst thing you can do in Indonesia is stand with your hands on your hips.

That’s really not good and people will take it as a show of arrogance -

- although there’s always an exception to every rule of course!
