Janine Driver

Body Language Institute

Janine Driver is the CEO of the Body Language Institute, an exclusive certification program that provides companies the fastest way to save time and make money. She is also an international trainer and keynote speaker who playfully provides salespeople, professionals, and executives with cutting-edge, scientifically-based communication tools on how to win new business, increase sales, improve selection of salespeople, and sales managers, and generate a significant return on investment. Janine is a popular media guest who had made appearances on the Dr. Oz Show, The Rachael Ray Show, NBC's TODAY, and NBC's Weekend TODAY, FOX News, and CNN's Larry King Live. She has been quoted in the New York Times, the Washington Post, and in magazines such as Cosmopolitan and Psychology Today.

Not too long ago, Janine used to use body language every day to stay alive. She spent over fifteen-years as a federal law enforcement officer within the Department of Justice investigating skinheads, firearms traffickers, the manufacturing of illegal explosives, and fanatical survivalists. While in the field, to stay alive, Janine needed to size people up quickly - in less than seven-seconds. Over the past decade, Janine has since taught her cunning reading people skills to the ATF, FBI, CIA, DIA, International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP), and to over 60,000 federal, state, and local law enforcement officers, lawyers, and judges.
