Small Talk

To some, small talk is a door opener to stimulating conversations and meaningful relationships, to others simply an elegant way to say nothing. Either way, small talk is not avoidable. It is a way of connecting with people – be it at a reception, before a business meeting, at a private dinner with new acquaintances or with the person you are stuck with in an elevator.

In this seminar you will learn how small talk can be your door opener to lots more interesting, meaningful conversations down the road.
