Ponta vs. Olteanu – the nonverbal challenge

I wanted to write about Dragos, Marius and their national event called “Olimpiadele Comunicarii“, a Romanian competition for the young PR professionals 🙂 and here is my chance since I had the opportuniy to see their photos (I’m sorry I didn’t made it to the event this year).

Because I’m a photo fan, this post will present a visual challenge between Victor Ponta and Bogdan Olteanu (both invited at Olimpiadele Comunicarii). I focused on the nonverbal messages and since I like to think that the pictures speak for themselves, here is the challenge:

Victor Ponta vs. Bogdan Olteanu

The secret handshake challenge:

Victor Ponta vs. Bogdan Olteanu

Two powerful people sharing an equal standard. Correct handshake for both of them 🙂

The black tie challenge:

Victor Ponta vs. Bogdan Olteanu

Young politicians at Olimpiadele Comunicarii. Do we wear a tie? Equal score, it’s a tie 🙂

The Arm&Body challenge:

Victor Ponta vs. Bogdan Olteanu

This is where Ponta gets 1 point because he’s so relaxed. The arms are casual floating around his body 🙂

AND NOW,

GET READY FOR THE FINAL CHALLENGE!

The Mike:

Victor Ponta vs. Bogdan Olteanu

Very good idea to get on the stage on your shirt. Keeping your hand in the pocket while speaking to a live young audience it’s a good idea 🙂 You might think Ponta is singing a rock song while Olteanu is doing stand-up comedy 🙂
