Better Small Talk is a unique read.  Imagine the following networking situation: you've just put on your name tag, and you're approached by a stranger. What do you say? Nice weather today. No, we can do better that this. Learn better small talk to avoid awkwardness, put people at ease, and build real rapport. 

You'll learn:

      • Exact dialogues, responses, phrases, and questions to use
      • How to tell captivating stories and what to actually focus on
      • Four ways to warm yourself up and prepare for even the most unpredictable conversations
      • How to instantly set a tone of friendship and openness with strangers
