Inside The World Of Nonverbal Communication – An Interview With Former FBI Spycatcher Joe Navarro.

Not many can say they were personally approached to join the FBI, but this is exactly what happened to Joe Navarro while he was working as a police officer at the tender age of 23. He accepted their offer and became one of the youngest agents ever to join the renowned investigative agency.
Joe spent the next 25 years at the FBI, working both as an agent and supervisor in the areas of counterintelligence and counter-terrorism Through his work he was able to study, refine and apply the science of non-verbal communications. His acumen in this field and his success as a spy-catcher, led Joe to begin training FBI agents and the intelligence community. Retiring from the FBI in 2003, and meeting overwhelming demand for his notable insights into human behavior, Joe has dedicated himself to speaking and consulting with major corporations worldwide.
Today Joe is recognized as one of the world’s foremost authorities on reading non-verbal communications and he is regularly interviewed on programs such as NBC’s Today Show, Fox News, ABC’s Good Morning America, CBS’ Early Show, and for publications such as The Washington Post and Psychology Today.
Mr. Navarro was kind enough to agree to answering some questions for myself and the readers of this blog. His answers were insightful and delightful in every way, and yes, we even briefly discussed Sherlock Holmes. Let’s jump right into it…

An amazing end to Sherlock Holmes Week, A lovely mention from Barefoot On Baker Street & more!

Well friends what can I say, Sunday nights live web event could not have went better! Together with the help of everyone that joined in we made something truly special happen. You all did an amazing job coming up with the numbers that would later prove to mean so much more. Four novels, Fifty six short stories the first of which appearing in ’87, 1887. Thanks to everyone who participated, viewed and those still enjoying the recording of happenings. Special guest Laura Anderson took a mental trip and was left with a memento of curious implications. Special thanks to Sherlockology, The Baker Street Babes, Luke Kuhns & MX Publishing for all their support! I’m already thinking of future events…

That’s right friends, we will be bringing Sherlock Holmes Week to a close with some live Mentalism & Sherlockian fun! This event is open to everyone who would like to attend. I will be on video interacting with you via an open chat window visible to everyone. Whether you’re coming to interact or just watch the fun, by all means do stop by and tell your friends about it!
As many of you know from my original blog post here, I’ve sent two separate “predictions” out; one to Sherlockology and the other, a strange phrase, to The Baker Street Babes. If everything goes well, this will all culminate in an amazing tapestry of events during the webcast that should be amazing and interactive for everyone. Special guests Luke Kuhns & Elena Kitzantides will also be present, helping to choose questions and moderate, etc.The theme is, of course, Sherlock Holmes Week. The purposes are: to have some fun, answer your burning questions, and to raise awareness for The Undershaw Preservation Trust.
