Programs and brief descriptions:
  • How to Work a Room™
    Based on her international best-seller, "How to Work a Room"
    "A room full of strangers" is identified as our #1 fear, yet most of us enter these rooms and face strangers OFTEN. These events are a source of professional and personal contacts. If we are uncomfortable when attending them, we miss opportunities.

  • Connectivity: The Human Touch in a Digital World
    Maintaining our interpersonal skills in an impersonal, internet world is difficult, and, yet, essential for success.

  • Super-NATURAL Selling
    With competition in the marketplace being keen, the ability to build referrals is beyond the cutting edge; it is the lifeblood of a sale and a successful business.

  • What Do I Say Next?: Schmooze or Lose
    According to research at Harvard University and Stanford University, the people who will succeed in the year 2000 will be the people who can talk with other people. The ability to converse with ease is a key component of leadership as well as personal and professional success.
    Overcoming shyness is a path to success.

  • The Secrets of Savvy Networking
    In today's market, the key to success, if not survival, is building a base of business referrals. It requires a foundation of skillful networking that creates long-lasting business relationships. Savvy networkers are perceived as powerful and effective.
    Overcoming shyness is a path to success.

  • How to Work a Trade Show
    The trade show/convention is an unique opportunity to increase your base of contacts, to buy and sell products and services and to have fun. You can rise to the challenge and seize the golden opportunity with proper preparation and planning.

  • When Mingling is Mandatory
    Clients ask me to help their exhibitors increase the return on their exhibit investment and to provide "mingling tips" for their convention audience. This incredible combination of two tremendously successful programs makes the big business of trade shows pay off.

  • Create Your Own Luck
    Have you ever heard someone's story and thought that they are so lucky? The good news is that "luck" is available to each and every one of us because people can turn random chance into runaway success.
