Topic: Impressive First Impressions

Speaker: Vu H. Pham, Ph.D.

Research shows that humans judge one another in very quick flashes and moments. We then form perceptions, which then lead to specific behaviors—perception thus becomes reality. In this presentation, you will learn how these critical first impressions can make or break interactions. More importantly, you will learn how to design the best and most-appropriate impression to influence your audience in any encounter, whether in a group or individual environment.

As the Managing Partner of Spectrum Knowledge, Inc., Vu H. Pham, Ph.D. works with dozens of organizations from the Fortune 500 to governmental and non-profit agencies to boost employee performance and strategic effectiveness. He also currently serves as an instructor at the UC San Diego Rady School of Management and at UCLA, as well as a Researcher at the Center for Research on Employment and the Workforce (CREW) at California State University—Fullerton. Dr. Pham and his work have been featured on national and international multimedia venues, such as CNN, MSNBC, the Associated Press, Voice of America, The Los Angeles Times, KSCI International Television, Diversity, Inc., Strategic Innovators, Asian Week and Radio Free Asia. Previously, he held Research Fellow positions through the University of California Office of the President and the Paul Merage School of Business at the University of California, Irvine. Having completed his doctoral degree from Cornell University, Dr. Pham’s specialties include the areas of culture, organizational development and leadership. He has a book entitled, “Impressive First Impressions: The Most Important 30 Seconds (And 30 Years) of Your Career.” He is part of the Upward Synergy Initiative at Cal State Fullerton’s CREW, which enables Employee Resource Groups at Fortune 500-level companies.
