Annie Sarnblad

Annie Särnblad

Global speaker and facial expressions expert

Annie Särnblad is a preeminent global speaker and expert in reading facial expressions, as well as an esteemed strategic advisor. She developed her own easy-to-absorb teaching techniques for facial expressions based on the knowledge she accumulated living in nine countries and studying eight languages through immersion. She is also certified in the Facial Action Coding System (FACS).

Annie has a Masters in Cultural Anthropology and built her career in Asia and Europe as an advisor to Fortune 500s, startups, and family offices. She has taught workshops for 4,000+ CEOs and MDs all over the globe. Annie’s teaching methods involve interactive, playful elements—an approach that works well for busy professionals who often have short attention spans and limited time.

Annie has written two books: Diary of a Human Lie Detector: Facial Expressions in Love, Lust, and Lies, which uses autobiographical pieces and marked-up photographs to teach facial expressions; and The Facial Expressions Glossary: Business Edition, which focuses on the 30+ facial expressions to look for during a negotiation.
