‘The Bunny’, ‘the Forehead Tattoo’ and ‘Pocket Rockets’ are terms coined by Bloomberg for Donald Trump’s abundance of hand gestures. Every good communicator knows that 93% of communication is non-verbal – made up of 55% body language and 38% tone of voice. Hand gestures are a big part of the body language which is why the Firefly Communications team is appreciating this glossary of gestures for critical decisions.

I mean, are you listening to me or do I need to do some backhand slapping here?

Now, off you go and enjoy using the various hand gestures. Just be aware of your surroundings (to steal Pokemon Go’s favourite new words of warning). Especially with the move ‘The Shelf Sweep’, you may end up accidentally sweeping everyone’s drinks to the floor!
