What Does Your Handwriting Say About You
Wednesday, July 20 from 1-2:30 p.m.
Just as no two fingerprints are alike, neither are two handwritings the same. There are over 5,000 things that handwriting reveals and approximately four things it does not. Handwriting analysis has been used in over 80 percent of the corporations in Europe for employment screening and has been used in Fortune 500 companies in the United States. Your handwriting reveals your strengths, your blocks and is one of the most brilliant tools to see inside your very soul; what makes you so uniquely you. Join Kathi McKnight for a fascinating talk and learn insider secrets about this ancient science that has truly stood the test of time.
Registration: Jun 7-Jul 5.
